Produces significant amounts of celery for the center and west of the country

With a population of 1,800 inhabitants at the beginning of 2021, Piñango is located 120 km from the city of Mérida and 78 km from Timotes, the closest populated center. Despite its remoteness, Piñango produces significant amounts of celery for the center and west of the country, an item that they manage to get from the villages traveling from stretch to stretch to their final destination. Producers of 1,000 kg of cheese weekly, Piñango manages to supply a little more than its periphery. Likewise, items such as potatoes, carrots, oats and tree tomatoes are characteristic of their landscapes, while blackberries, strawberries, corn and beans are produced on a smaller scale in family gardens.
