Casa Yangoe

“Casa Yangoe” is a project that was born to promote alternative commerce with food that comes from agroecological and organic production systems that guarantee a harmonious relationship between the soil, plants, animals, and the people who guard each space with the goal to make visible the work of the farmers and artisans, under a fair market model that permits them to grow and have access to a dignified life, where there is a direct exchange between producer families from different provinces of the country and the consumer families. The doors of our house are open starting the 9th of February of 2021, taking place in an architecture that safeguards the magic of the Historic Center of the city. It is divided into three spaces where they sell fresh foods such as fruits, vegetables, and dairy products; processed foods such as jams, sauces, condiments, handmade chocolate, and wines; handicrafts such as straw hats, clothing, decorative items, and natural cosmetics that come from different parts of the country. Inside our last patio, there is a cozy garden where you can relax and taste some of our delicious products such as a cheese table, a cup of wine, a coffee, or some snack from our menu. Visiting our house is, without a doubt, a must for those who visit or live in Cuenca, since it is the perfect opportunity to have a moment of relaxation and also support fair trade in the region by purchasing high-quality products.
