Mexico City’s Campo Marte sports complex, in the Polanco neighborhood, will open its doors this weekend to thousands of foodies, wine lovers and locals for Sabor es Polanco, one of Mexico City’s major annual gastronomical festivals.

Happening March 12 and 13, Sabor es Polanco’s eighth annual event will bring together restaurants, national winemakers and spirits distillers, as well as hundreds of gourmet products, for visitors to sample at their leisure. Attendees can map their own route through the festival, which will include over 200 stands.
