Alberto Lavalle, head of Yucatán Foodie and spokesperson for the National Corn, Chile and Cacao Fair, emphasized that they chose these dates to develop the event because it is a patriotic month and precisely the emblematic ingredients that correspond to Mexican gastronomy.

“It is about the culture and the value of Mexican cuisine and that is how the idea of making this fair came up,” he said.
