Oaxaca community thrives in Madera, California. (By way of the NYTimes)

3 Aug

It’s always nice when you see positive things being said about Mexican immigrants in the US, even though it’s also also a bit of a rarity these days.

So it’s very interesting to read that the New York Times published a feature article today that mentions, in an enthusiastic tone, some of the contributions of a community of Mexican people living in the US. In this case, it’s Oaxacan immigrants in the city of Madera, California.

This Oaxacan community has established itself right in the “mero ombligo de California” all the while keeping their strong working values and ethics, love of their culture and capacity to farm and produce healthy, organic crops.

So,  Muchas Gracias New York Times for alerting us about it. Sounds like a little field trip for me. Just reading it makes me want to go grocery shopping to this place.

You can read the article “Markets Evoke Memories of Mexico” by Patricia Leigh Brown HERE and see the fabulous photogallery by Jim Wilson HERE.

The NY Times story was published today, August 3, 2011.
