Yeéy Ethnic Market Project confirmed in La Paz

The Yeéy Ethnic Market, an exclusive space for the indigenous and Afro-Mexican communities that live in our Municipality, was presented by Municipal President Milena Quiroga Romero, who also confirmed its construction for this year. It will be situated in the El Esterito neighborhood.

He voted during the meeting to approve the project as well as to bring up the matter at the next Cabildo meeting in order to ask for leftover resources that have not been used this year and be directed to the market. The indigenous groups need major help from the municipal government.

After researching the needs of the indigenous tribes residing in the Municipality, it was decided that one of these needs was a place where they might have the chance to market their goods, including food and handicrafts. This idea gave rise to the Yeéy Ethnic Market.

Last but not least, Marcelo Ortega Yee, coordinator of Special Programs and Welfare at the Office of Indigenous and Afro-Mexican Affairs, was in charge of outlining this project designed by Urbanera A.C., which will be situated on property owned by the La Paz City government in the Esterito neighborhood between Ignacio Altamirano and Colegio Militar streets and will have space for 30 stores, restrooms, a warehouse, an amphitheater, among other amenities.
