Bagels Come to Vallarta's Old Town Farmers Market

January 2, 2015

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 until April 25, 2015.

Puerto Vallarta, Mexico - Ready to discover something new and flavorful this Saturday? Come on down to Vallarta's favorite attraction: the Old Town Farmers Market-Tianguis Cultural. We have 90+ producer-only vendors with all sorts of "make it, bake it, grow it" goodies and services to wow you and your loved ones.

One such gotta-try is Vallarta Bagel World with its freshly baked, yummy-for-the-whole-family bagels. Traditional, sesame, poppy seed and whole grain which is sprinkled with sunflower and flax seeds - they've got 'em all. Exotic flavors are also available, including the jalapeño and cheddar cheese.

Bagels: Great Flavor without the Guilt

We all know that whole grains and vegetables are the basis of a healthy diet, and bagels offer a wealth of vitamins and minerals to keep you in tip-top shape.

But if you're thinking, "A crunchy, just-toasted bagel sounds heavenly, but it can pack on those unwanted calories," then worry no more. Only 11 calories come from fat with an average plain bagel. Compare that to the 54 fat calories that come with an average croissant!

Plus, bagels are cholesterol and fat-free. None of the ingredients contain fats or any animal-derived products such as milk, eggs, butter, shortening or fat-based preservatives.

History of the Bagel

Bagels have been a food staple since the beginning of Egyptian civilization. Its round shape and hole-in-the-middle are not only distinct, but handy for transport.

The popular boiled bagel, which is the preferred bagel of today, was first made in the 17th century by the Eastern European Jewish community. With migrations to America, bagels became a hit in New York as traditional breakfast menu items. Its simple, yet scrumptious flavor, spread throughout the world, thanks to the frozen food revolution. Fresh or frozen, each bite is full of flavor, texture and healthy properties.

Tip-Top Bagel Toppings

There are endless ways to top a Vallarta Bagel World's freshly baked bagel. Sweet butter or cream cheese and smoked salmon are always popular choices. We'd also suggest trying additional options from fellow OTFM-TC vendors: nut butters, jellies, Mexican cheese, lentil sprouts, farm-fresh vegetables and sliced deli meats.

Stop by this Saturday to pick out your favorite Vallarta Bagel World bagel. On weekdays, visit their shop, which is located at Revolucion 353, Las Juntas, behind Home Depot. (+52 322-146-7180 or vallartabagelworld(at)
