Puerto Vallarta, Mexico - This week all of Mexico will be celebrating Semana Santa, the Christian holiday of Easter. Hundreds of nationals will be in town to celebrate and attend traditional reenactments of the events leading up to Christ's crucifixion.
If you're in town, be sure to stop by the Old Town Farmers' Market-Tianguis Cultural for a whirl-wind of market fun. From live music to international edibles and from exclusive arts & crafts to on-site health services, we've got it all to keep the celebrations going.
Cacahuate Carlos - Carlos Valdivia and Lisa Gilroy have added freshly roasted almond butter to their already extensive line of peanut products. Like their all-natural peanut butters, Cacahuate Carlos' almond butter is free from salt, sugar and added oil. Not only is it tasty, it's rich in antioxidants, protein, fiber and monounsaturated fats making it a tasty, good-for-you treat. (322) 181-9355 or Facebook
Los Sabores de Cristy - If you're ready to shake up your Semana Santa menu, Sergio Alpenia's new homemade hummus spread should be at the top of your shopping list. The chef at his family-owned business, Archie's Wok, Alpenia soaks his garbanzo beans overnight, whips up his own tahini and purees the beans while adding olive oil and lime. Flavors include natural, chipotle, extra garlic and cilantro. (322) 151-2105
