Natural Thangs is ready for a new season, with its Farmers Market opening 9 a.m.-noon every Monday between Oct. 2 and April 29. Over 25 local food vendors set up in and around an events salon off the highway between Chelem and Chuburná. Crafts and apparel are sold in the same location at its Artisan Market every Thursday starting Oct. 12.

The original Tierra Mérida Slow Food Market is open 9 a.m.-1 p.m. every Saturday at Plaza Colón, García Ginerés. It stays open all year but will be getting busier as the snowbirds return. Free copies of Yucatán Magazine are available throughout the market and at the Yucatan Homes & Lots office.
