It is organized by the Mayor's Office of Santa Cruz, the Departmental Government, and the Center for Sustainable Human Participation and Development (Cepad). it began yesterday and one hundred producers from the provinces of Florida, Vallegrande, and Manual María Caballero are participating.
You'll find typical cruceño foods such as pork, duck, asadito, enrollado, chicharrón, tamales and humintas, fruit licquers, breads, empanadas, cookies, jams, and much more. You'll also find many lovely Bolivian handcrafts. It's worth a visit. It's small and nice for a Sunday stroll.
