Plant Exchange in Patzcuaro

Patzcuaro’s Exchange is a tradition that has persisted for centuries, going back to pre-Hispanic times when merchants from various Purepecha villages gathered here to sell their wares and sell them to other merchants.

This tradition continues to this day, every Friday, in Patzcuaro (Plaza San Francisco), where people from around Lake Patzcuaro gather to show and sell not only their artisanware, but their horticulture, as well.

A couple months ago, as an off-shoot of the traditional Exchange, the Plant Exchange took up root (excuse the puns!), and is held the last Sunday of each month in the Plaza Vasco de Quiroga.

 This is the initiative of some energetic women looking for a way to bond with other people using plants as their medium.  They want to broaden the variety of plants in the household, as well as to increase green spaces wherever possible.

By safeguarding and increasing green spaces in Patzcuaro, we can improve our quality of life, making it a friendlier place to live, both inside and outside the house.

Another important aspect of the Plant Exchange is sharing information on how to care for the various plants, and making them a part of our lives.

Sunday is always a festive time in the Plaza Vasco de Quiroga – the heart of Patzcuaro – with art, music, food, dance, etc.  And on the last Sunday of each month, we now add the Plant Exchange.
