Los Mercados, opening November 30, 2010, will offer the finest collection of fully prepared foods, wine, fresh produce, a paint-your-own pottery studio, pastries & deli items in Banderas Bay!
Puerto Vallarta, Mexico - Whether a local or visitor, there are times when we crave certain items here in paradise: the perfect pastrami sandwich, a favorite bottle of wine, or a light and fluffy croissant, as examples. But we have learned to settle. We trade off the sun and warmth for the lack of access to certain items that we long for.

Well, those days are gone now that Los Mercados has opened on the south side of Puerto Vallarta, just a half-block west of Rizo's on Aquiles Serdan. Los Mercados is a combination of 4 stores and a studio, all under one roof, offering the finest collection of items available in the bay! Here in the beautiful two-story hacienda, beyond their ornate gates, you'll discover these amazing shops at Aquiles Serdan #265

MIKEY'S - Fine Foods & Delicatessen. Offering fully prepared foods, meals and quality meats cut to order. You'll find homemade sausages and bacon with a wonderful selection of breads and gourmet cheeses. Plus everything that you would expect from a fine deli: fresh pastas, salads and deli meats, including homemade pastrami, roast beef and turkey. Gourmet meals without the headache! 322-223-0588

CORK + BOTTLE - Fine Wines & Sprits. A knowledgeable bilingual staff is ready to assist you in selecting just the right bottle of wine or spirit. Wine tastings will also be offered. 322-222-2806

DON FRESCO - Fresh produce. A wide variety of the freshest fruits and produce brought in daily. 322-223-5482

k' rico :) - Pastries, Coffees, Cakes & More! Satisfy your sweet tooth with our delicious full-sized cakes and individual desserts: croissants, tarts and cakes. Plus get your favorite smoothies and espresso drinks. 322-222-3076

The Los Mercados' team has brought together the best and brightest to create an enclave of fine stores. Cork + Bottle is lead by Nina Goodhope, a wine supplier in Vallarta for more than 20 years who supplies wine to some of the finest restaurants in the Bay. Mikey's delectable items will be created by Chef Elliott Gallagher and assistant Daniela Varona. Elliott brings nearly 20 years experience in the food and beverage industry in the United States (Sonoma County) and Mexico while Daniela brings her degree in Gastronomy from La Salle University as well as her extensive experience in kitchens across North America to Puerto Vallarta. The yummy treats available in k' rico :) are baked by Master Chef Maria Ines Hidalgo. Maria has her degree in French Pastry and has perfected her techniques throughout Europe, Mexico and Canada.

So, the next time you have a craving for something really good, head on over to Los Mercados on the south side of Puerto Vallarta. Open Monday through Saturday 9:00 am to 8:00 pm. (Cork + Bottle will open at 10am). Los Mercados is located just a half-block west of Rizo's on Aquiles Serdan 265.
