About the Author

Hola! I’m Margret, the Founder of Frutas y Verduras Mexico and author of Frutas y Verduras – A Fresh Food Lover’s Guide to Mexico.

In 2009, I took my background in design and my culinary passion and experience and made my first journey to Mexico to investigate its cuisine. Quickly, my interest shifted from the preparations of traditional recipes to the ingredients themselves. In the 10 years since, I have learned more about food, cultural attitudes, respect for the land and humanity in general, through the exchanges I have had in the markets of Mexico.


I hope my work with Frutas y Verduras will inspire you, too, to go deeper and make a connection as you eat the best, most regional foods in Mexico.
