You won't want to miss Wednesday afternoons this Summer at Centro!
Every Wednesday, from June 13th - September 29th 4:00 - 7:00 PM Centro will host its popular Mercadito in the front parking lot.
Mercadito is not your traditional farmer's market -- modeled on the mercaditos you find in Latin America it brings together culinary experiences with entertainment the whole family can enjoy! Some of the things to look forward to include live cooking demonstrations and food sampling, fun and free activities for children, local products on sale, musical and dance performances. So bring your family and friends and plan to join us every Wednesday for Mercadito!
ABOUT EL MERCADITO DE CENTRO
El Mercadito’s mission is to offer an open and healthy place where members of Madison’s Southside community can share their cultural heritage and culinary traditions. The market complements current efforts to bring healthy food to the Southside, by adding extra ingredients that will help break some of the barriers and challenges community members face in accessing healthy foods. This community market mimics those in Latin America, Bhutan, and Laos- where the markets are more than a place for transactions and sightseeing, they are places where aromas are mixed with a sense of home and security.
