Riviera Nayarit welcomes the new Tianguis Lo De Marcos, which will feature the works of over 40 talented Artisans including growers of Organic Produce, and a Food Court with a handful of select providers selling an impressive selection of food items you are not likely to find elsewhere.
“Everyone involved with the Production of Tianguis Lo De Marcos, when they see the samples and photos of the items for sale, say – ‘I want that’ or ‘I will buy one of those’ and we know that’s what you will be saying as well,” stated Claudia Curtis, the Market Coordinator.
To kick off the opening day with a splash the Tianguis has planned the following specials:
**A 25% discount on all Beverages purchased at the Palm Bar.
**A raffle to win a Gift Certificate for $2500.00 pesos to be used during your next visit to the Tianguis.
Held each Saturday from November 1st to March 28th from 9:00 am until 2:00 pm in the charming Pueblo of Lo De Marcos at Luis Echeverria #9, this event is not to be missed.
It is recommended that you visit the Tianguis early during your stay because you will want to return again and again to explore this unique shopping venue in Riviera Nayarit.
On the other side of the bay in the Romantic Zone of Puerto Vallarta, The Old Town Farms Market returns for another season.
Market organizers say this year shoppers can pick up farm-fresh produce, apparel for the family, homemade dips and salsas, fresh cut flowers, organic coffee, bread, flavorful cheeses, chocolates, handcrafted jewelry, baked goods, deli meats, body products, refreshing beverages, take home and freshly prepared foods.
The market is open every Saturday between 9:30 AM – 2:00 PM beginning November 1, 2014 until April 25, 2015.
So if you are still wondering what a Tianguis is, it’s an open air market or bazaar that is traditionally held on certain market days in a town or city neighborhood in Mexico and Central America. This bazaar tradition has its roots well into the pre-Hispanic period and continues in many cases essentially unchanged into the present day.
It’s a Mexico tradition and something you should certainly experience while visiting the Vallarta-Nayarit area.
