- From Nuevo Vallarta to La Peñita de Jaltemba, from November to May, there’s a farmers market going on every day of the week.
The Riviera Nayarit’s tourism corridor is once again busy with a variety of Artisanal and Organic Farmers Markets, also known as Tianguis, which offer locals and tourists one more shopping option during the high season (winter and part of spring). There are also the more traditional markets, the Tianguis Tradicionales, which operate year round.
From Nuevo Vallarta to la Peña de Jaltemba you’ll find dozens of sellers and artists setting up shop from 9 a.m. to about 2 p.m. in the streets, plazas and other public areas, lending the Destination a special attraction.
Come enjoy everything from handicrafts to organic products, home-style food, accessories, jewelry, ceramics, yoga classes, live music and much more.
Seasonal Organic and Artisanal Tianguis, or Farmers Markets
Every Tuesday in Nuevo Vallarta you’ll find the Riviera Nayarit Farmers Market in full swing in the parking lot of the Centro Empresarial. The Nuevo Vallarta Artisanal Tianguis opens shop there on Saturdays at the Marina Nuevo Vallarta.
In Bucerías there’s the Monday Market, which, as its name implies, takes place every Monday at the Artwalk Plaza; another version happens at the square in Rincón de Guayabitos. In La Cruz you can browse the Mercado Huanacaxtle on Sundays at the Marina Riviera Nayarit.
If you’re looking for something even more organic and natural, try the Mercado del Pueblo in Sayulita happening every Friday on Revolución Street, the Mercado del Sol in San Pancho on Tuesdays at the Plaza del Sol or the newest in the area, the Tianguis Lo de Marcos on Saturdays along the main avenue.
Year round Traditional Tianguis
The Mexican Tianguis Tradicionales that operate year round also get a boost during this season. La Cruz de Huanacaxtle holds its own every Wednesday in the bandstand area; Bucerías has its market on Sundays near the stream; the largest of all takes place on Thursdays in La Peñita de Jaltemba on their main square.
