The annual Puerto Vallarta market is back. The market prides itself on their "make it, bake it, grow it" motto, ensuring everything offered by over 80 vendors are made, baked, or grown within 75 kilometres of the area.

Get Set For Puerto Vallarta’s Old Town Farmers Market

According to the regular market goer, it’s not just the shopping that brings them out almost every weekend, it’s the social experience of seeing their friends and neighbours, music, food, and it’s more like a neighborhood street party than a simple market. The market is open every Saturday between 9:30 AM – 2:00 PM starting November 1, 2014 until April 25, 2015. On the inaugural day, there will be a special ribbon cutting to begin the new season at 9:30 AM.

Parking is available for $10 pesos an hour in the parking garage under Lazaro Cárdenas Park in the Romantic Zone, steps away from the beach, Olas Altas, and just a few blocks south of the Río Cuale and the Malecón. The Old Town Farms Market in Puerto Vallarta began in 2010 in the Paradise Community Center on Pulpito, but grew out of the space available within just a couple of seasons and moved to Lazaro Cárdenas Park where it spans an entire city block, with some overflow. These are the things which make Puerto Vallarta real estate such a great place to live.

This year the shoppers can buy farm-fresh produce, apparel for the family, homemade dips and salsas, fresh cut flowers, organic coffee, bread, flavourful cheeses, chocolates, handcrafted jewellery, baked goods, deli meats, body products, refreshing beverages, take home and freshly prepared foods.

There are with many food vendors serving international cuisine, such as; Thai, Taiwanese, Indian and Mexican (tacos, empanadas, burritos, traditional foods served in clay pots, green pozole and agua frescas). They even have a selection of vegan dishes – hamburgers, al pastor, falafels and sticky buns from where you can settle up for lunch right at the market itself.

The location of Malecón makes it a convenient spot for locals and tourists alike to visit and experience a traditional street market, here in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico.
