Then, ethical fashion is next on our agenda, the team here travel throughout Mexico meeting artisans who specialize in handmade textiles, learning from them and utilizing their centuries-old indigenous techniques, preserving them for future generations to enjoy. We will stop for lunch at Huerto Roma Verde, a funky community garden that grew out of a neighborhood ruined by the devastating 1985 earthquake Next, we will visit Mercado Medellín (officially known as Mercado Melchor Ocampo) where you can try a lot of exotic flavors of natural ice cream made with exotic fruits. From the traditional Mercado Medellín to the modern Mercado Roma, this neighborhood, Colonia Roma, is affectionately referred to by the locals as the ‘Magical Neighborhood’ because of its delightful array of restaurants, bars, cantinas, and breweries. Among the beer, street food, sauces, wine and chocolate you can pick up at the market is Churreria el Moro, as we munch on our churros, we will stroll the streets, stopping in at galleries and stores selling furniture, art and old crafts.
