While I was in Panama I went to a market day with my friend at the City of Knowledge. She has begun making and selling organic soaps and facial and body products so her table was a perfect fit for the site. (More on that later.) You can see some of what she makes and sell on her website Beauty Essence Organics (BE Organic). The site is in Spanish, she’s been busy developing her products and one day we’ll get that translation button installed on the site.
Ciudad del Saber or the City of Knowledge is in Clayton, near the Miraflores Locks and the Panama Canal Visitor Center. The main access to the City of the Knowledge is across the road from the Miraflores Locks. We came in through the other access from El Dorado and Albrook districts, coming through Corridor Norte.
It wasn’t my first time in the Clayton area but it was the first time in many years. The French Market at La Plaza is held every month on the last weekend of the month. My friend only signed up for Saturday as it was her first time there. The day was so long and tiring I was glad.
Today, I’d like to highlight the French Market itself which was a long but successful day, when I was not…in the campo.
