“My mother, Elena Ríos, sang like a dove…like a paloma. She inspired me to explore new horizons and to work in creating stronger families and communities,” says Rosa Ríos Valdez, co-founder and president of Salud de Paloma.

Our olive oils are named “Paloma” to celebrate Rosa’s mother and her journey with diabetes. Originally from Guanajuato, Mexico, she loved her family, and she loved great food – she passed down these two traditions to Rosa, which we now share with you and your family. Su familia.

Mother’s Day in the United States is an annual holiday celebrated on the second Sunday in May. Mother’s Day recognizes mothers, motherhood and maternal bonds in general, as well the positive contributions that they make to society. Although many Mother’s Day celebrations world-wide have quite different origins and traditions, most have now been influenced by the more recent American tradition established by Anna Jarvis, who celebrated it for the first time in 1908, then campaigned to make it an official holiday.

In Mexico, Mother’s Day was first imported from United States in 1922. Today “Día de las Madres” is a holiday celebrated annually on May 10 in Mexico, El Salvador, Guatemala, and Belize. In Bolivia, Mother’s Day is celebrated on May 27, on the date of a battle in which women participated.

At HOPE Farmers Market in Austin, Texas this Sunday, May 12, we will be selling our limited edition, beautifully packaged Salud de Paloma Mother’s Day Gift Box containing bottles of our flavorful, healthy extra virgin olive oil. Complete the gift with fresh bread, cheese, and vegetables from the other local farmers and vendors at the market, and surprise your mom with a Sunday picnic!
