Cabo Rojo still has a small town feel, as you drive around you’ll find vendors selling local fresh fruits, vegetables and roots. Many of the vendors offer prices lower than supermarkets and much of the produce is organically grown. Buying from local vendors is a more personal and joyful experience because they remember your faces, your name and what your preferences.
I have great memories of going into El Pueblo to buy produce with my sweet mother. She always went to the same gentleman, he sold the displayed the produce on the sidewalk right in front of his residence, the service was excellent and he even had my mother’s favorites put away for her because he knew which days we went.
Please support our local vendors and visit our Plaza de Mercado (Farmer’s Market).
