Happy New Year!
I’ve been busy sorting through years of photos on my computer and in the process came across so many that I need to share with you, including these. One of my favourite things I did while I was in Puerto Vallarta was go to the Old Town Farmers Market on Saturday morning. It felt like I was at home!
The Old Town Farmers Market-Tianguis Cultural, a “producer only” market, is one of Puerto Vallarta’s most compelling weekend attractions. Visit us for a great selection of locally grown farm-fresh produce, artisan foods, handmade crafts, art, jewelry, clothing, community education and live music. All products are made, baked, grown and sold by vendors living within 75 kilometers of Puerto Vallarta.
Open from the first Saturday in November to the last Saturday in April, the market is a one-of-a-kind, “make it, bake it, grow it” shopping adventure. From fresh produce, prepared foods, artisan chocolates to soaps, baskets and clothes; there really is something for everyone – whether you are a local or a tourist (yay for real locally made souvenirs!).
The market is located just off the Malecon, in the beautifully landscaped Lazaro Cardenas Parque located in the heart of Colonia Emiliano Zapata and runs from 9:30 to 2pm.
There is underground parking nearby and if you are not downtown, you can easily get there by bus or taxi. Washrooms are available and trust me, you will never go hungry.
I hope you enjoy your trip to the market as much as I did. Shopping local is always great, no matter where you are!
