Date: Monday, 30 May 2022

On May 30 is National Potato Day in Peru, the day each year to pay homage and celebrate one of the most important food crops in the world originating in Peru.

To celebrate the immense diversity of the potato, to increase the consumption as well of native varieties and to give small farmers, which primarily grow the tuber in Peru, a platform to introduce their produce to consumers, the National Potato Day was officially initiated in 2005

Since then each May 30 (and around this date) there are numerous festivities, festivals and fairs throughout the country that offer Peruvian dishes and drinks made with the famous tuber, markets where farmers offer their great variety of native Peruvian potatoes, cooking classes and contests around the potato.
