Edible New Mexico Tours Oaxaca!

February 8-16, 2021

A Valentine's Gift

for Yourself

 

Experience Oaxaca and all its flavor while traveling with Edible New Mexico. Let's come together around the tables of Oaxaca to share meals, stories, discover new culinary traditions, learn about ancient foodways, and awaken our taste buds. When we aren’t eating we’ll visit archeological sites, artisans, rural villages and mezcalerias, world class museums, galleries and more.  Leave your coats & mittens at home -- the average daytime temp is in the 80s!   Edible New Mexico patrons will appreciate special-topic visits with organic farms and community members involved with Oaxacan sustainability efforts.
