Good-For-You Foods at the Old Town Farmers' Market

April 3, 2014

Located in Lazaro Cárdenas Park on PV's South side, the Old Town Farmers' Market-Tianguis Cultural is open every Saturday from 9:30 am-2 pm from the first Saturday in November to the last Saturday in May.

Puerto Vallarta, Mexico - Farm-fresh produce, international cuisine, tropical apparel and live entertainment... could this be a dream? Nope, it's the very real Old Town Farmers Market-Tianguis Cultural. In fact, we have very real "make it, bake it, grow it" products and services from over 80 local vendors to thrill you this Saturday.

Below are four of our artisan foods, each with good-for-you (and your pet) ingredients.

La Vaka Gorda - Joaquin Mauleòn and his wife, Blanca, blend whole milk and Canadian cultures to create one of the Market's best-selling products: a line of "no sugar, no salt, no preservatives" Greek yoghurt. Plain and vanilla flavors are available as well as a variety of tasty yoghurt dips made with chipotle, garlic, salt or olive oil and fine herbs. (322) 888-4120 or lavakagorda(at)

Organ-ick - Unhappy with store-bought pet treats, animal lover Sylvie Scopazzo set out to create 100% preservative-free dehydrated beef and chicken organ snacks for dogs and cats. The result was Organ-ick, a favorite among four-legged pals from all over the world. Stop by this Saturday to pick up your own bag of this quintessential snack for your favorite pets. sylviescopazzo(at)

Shining Sprouts - Fill your tummy with fresh, healthy sprouts grown by food specialist Fabiola Lopez Polo. These "small but mighty" sprouts keep bones, skin and hair healthy and are a great source of energy. Use them to top your favorite salads, soups and sandwiches. And be sure to pick up two other Shining Sprouts favorites: homemade Organic Basil & Olive Oil dressing and Zancudoff, an all-natural bug repellent. (322) 152-0903 or fabiolalopezpolo(at)

Willy Villagrain - Heralded as one of the healthiest foods on the planet (thanks to over 25 essential nutrients), avocados are the star of Villagrain's savory guacamole. And skipping the mayo in favor of heart-healthy ingredients, Villagrain wows visitors with her Mexican twist on the traditional potato salad. Both make a great side dish - or even a main course - for your weekly menu. (322) 205-0475 or vallarta6843(at)

Join us this Saturday for an unforgettable good-for-you shopping adventure.

Impassioned by responsible food production, entrepreneurial development and the "buy local" movement, our OTFM-TC is a North American style market celebrating the tradition of Mexico's tianguis markets.

Located in Lazaro Cárdenas Park, kitty-corner to Daiquiri Dick's on Olas Atlas, the Old Town Farmers' Market-Tianguis Cultural is open every Saturday from 9:30 am to 2 pm from the first Saturday in November to the last Saturday in May. For only $10 pesos an hour, you can park in the garage directly beneath the plaza. Or you can take a taxi or public bus, which stops along Pino Suarez Street, just steps from the Market.
