Le Marché Las Mexicanitas Market is originally a physical market, created on April 8, 2019 in Châteauguay (Quebec). During its first edition we had the pleasure of having more than 20 Mexican entrepreneurs who had the opportunity to sell and make known to the visitors, for the first time, their artisanal products as well as their homemade dishes, all of this at a low price. Our second edition was held on May 9, 2019, thus celebrating Mother’s Day and, wishing to broaden our vision to the whole of Latin America. We had the incredible pleasure to receive the participation of 15 entrepreneurs from Mexico and other countries, such as Colombia, Peru, Ecuador, Chile and El Salvador. Our third edition was then held, with resounding success, on October 26th of the same year to celebrate the Day of the Dead (Dia de Muertos) in a beautifully decorated environment, very Mexican-ish, and always with the participation of our entrepreneurs who give this unique and unparalleled touch to our markets, recognized by the entire Latin community of Quebec and Canada. Some of them had even traveled from Toronto to participate.
We live in a time when the mega-industrialization of design and fashion offers are becoming overwhelming and forcing us to be permanent consumers with ever lower production costs. All this forces small, quality producers to constantly reduce their margins, which on the one hand ultimately reduces the quality of the products but above all increases the precariousness of the artisans. This is where projects of resistance like ours come in, which refuse to lower their flags and who believe in the principles of fair trade.
The crisis of 2020 has put a pause to this expansion. This is why was born the project to create a virtual extension of our market so that all our entrepreneurs could continue to offer and sell their products and services easily and permanently via our “LasMexicanitas.ca” page.
One of the goals of the Las Mexicanitas Market is for our customers to purchase a product, clothing or an accessory that they can use without restriction of location or time. These unique products that you will find on our virtual page are also found in our physical markets that we will continue to make them throughout the year in different parts of Montreal and its surroundings, as soon as the sanitary situation allows it.
On our lasmexicanitas.ca page, you can find all kinds of crafts, clothing, jewelry, items to decorate your home, as well as typical homemade Latin American dishes.
We invite you to take a quick tour of our virtual market and we are sure that you will find something for you, your family or your friends.
We guarantee 100% artisanal quality.
