There, vacationers will enjoy exploring the eclectic and interesting farmers market that receives more than 100,000 visitors each year. There are more than 80 vendor booths selling locally made products produced and sold by vendors that live within 75 kilometers of Puerto Vallarta. There is incredible food, jewelry, clothes, and so much more as well as live music, too. Popular items include organic coffee, farm-to-table produce, herbs, flowers, baked goods, salsa and dips, chocolate, locally made cheeses, fresh pasta, meat pies, perogies, Greek yogurt, and more. You can even get an adjustment from a board-certified chiropractor or pamper yourself with a professional massage.
Puerto Vallarta Marina
The Puerto Vallarta marina market is another wonderful attraction to visit on Thursdays from 6:00 pm to 10:00 pm. The market is held from the beginning of November 2021 through May 2022. Visitors will be able to take a stroll through the marina as they check out all the cool offerings from local vendors, merchants, artists, and artisans displaying their goods. You can bet there will be an incredible variety of delicious foods and drinks to try, too. Wondering what to try first? Some of the most popular foods include traditional Mexican tacos, tamales, burritos, empanadas, Thai entrees, Indian cuisine, homemade pastries, and baked goods, Italian Limoncello, raspados, aguas frescas, and chocolate-dipped bananas. We recommend you come early as you have to enjoy a meal from the delicious prepared foods available at the Marina market!
La Cruz in Riviera Nayarit
If you want to head north of Puerto Vallarta, the La Cruz de Huanacaxtle Market is located about a half-hour north of PV in the neighboring state of Riviera Nayarit. The La Cruz Market first opened in November 2010 as a place to promote local artisan works without intermediaries. They recently moved and are now located within the Marina Riviera Nayarit at La Cruz. La Cruz Market is proud to feature the best artisan products in Banderas Bay. The La Cruz farmers market will be open every Sunday morning from 9:00 am to 2:00 pm starting in November through the end of April. In addition to the wide variety of products available for purchase, make sure to take the time to enjoy the beautiful marina and Banderas Bay views.
