A culinary expedition from the Sea of Cortés to the Yucatán Peninsula is coming to you at Central Market!

For the past six years, Central Market has taken cuisine excursions through different countries via passport. In its 7th year, Central Market celebrates Pasaporte Mexico April 20–May 3, when tastes of traditional cuisines of Mexico’s interior and coastal regions will be offered to guests. Mexico’s widely diverse geographical landscapes yield a tremendous variety of bold flavors and unique regional dishes, many of which are not widely known by its neighbors to the north.

The New York Times ranked Mexico City the number one travel destination in 2016, and the culinary adventurers at Central Market could not agree more! It’s the perfect time for Texans to explore and expand their appreciation for the various traditions of this intriguing country. Mexico is rich in culture and diversity with indigenous art, music and cuisine influenced by centuries past; it is a place that naturally evokes curiosity and discovery.

During Pasaporte Mexico, Central Market stores across Texas will overflow with an array of unique Mexican products, including savory prepared foods, bakery specialties, wines, olive oil, honey, chocolates, craft beers, coffee and much more. The stores’ chefs and café staff will serve up amazing dishes such as traditional pozole, Oaxacan style mole, and nopales salads, just to name a few.

More exciting details will be announced on their website at centralmarket.com.
