Do Your Holiday Shopping at Vallarta's OTFM-TC

December 17, 2015

Located in Lazaro Cárdenas Park on Puerto Vallarta'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 30th.

Puerto Vallarta, Jalisco, Mexico - With the holidays fast approaching, it's the perfect time to give locally made gifts! Our 90+ artists, soap makers, jewelers, doctors, farmers, bakers, seamstresses and chocolatiers have "make it, bake it, grow it" treasures to wow your loved ones.

Select from handcrafted jewelry, natural body products, pre-Hispanic musical instruments, Huichol art, traditionally woven items, artisan foods and more! Your buy-local gift will also come with personal service, real value, a great story and the feel-goods that come with contributing to the local economy.

While you are doing your Christmas shopping, be sure to check out the 100% natural coconut products of Carlos Morlett's MuchoCoco.

Meet MuchoCoco


It was a bright sunny day in 2010, when a tropical breeze swayed the palms and caused a coconut to drop on Carlos Morlett's head.

"When it happened, something shook loose in my brain," says Morlett, claiming that the incident made him a little loco (Spanish for "crazy") for coconuts! But really, Morlett was no stranger to coconuts. As a child vacationing in the tropics, he watched the locals cook with coconut oil, use the fruit's skin as a natural moisturizer and sun block, and fashion the wood - from what they called the "Tree of Life" - into homes. This time, though, Morlett was inspired to maximize the benefits of this natural ingredient and share it with others.

Today, natural product-lovers around the world have joined Morlett in their loco-ness for coconuts! They enjoy the benefits of coconut oil to moisturize dry skin, calm irritated areas and amplify one's natural beauty. With over 300 ways to use coconuts for a healthy lifestyle, Morlett's brings his own tried-and-true methods to create a must-have line of 100% natural, coconut body products.

100% Natural Coconut Products


Through extensive research and testing, MuchoCoco has found a way to utilize the various healing properties of the coconut.

"We use only the purest ingredients sourced directly from clean lands where they are naturally grown, processed and packed with the utmost care," says Morlett. "This process allows us to guarantee the freshness, quality and effectiveness of all of our coconut skin care products."

The MuchoCoco product line includes pure coconut oil (in solid and liquid form) and bougainvillea infused coconut oil. MuchoCoco products can also be found in spas, hotels and resorts, and specialty boutiques throughout Mexico.

If you'd like to learn more about MuchoCoco, contact Morlett at (322) 134-4162 or sunvirginbioorganic(at)yahoo.com.

While you're at the market, join us for yoga classes (9:30-10:30 am) taught by instructors from Yoga Colective. We meet in the kiosk every Saturday thru April 30. Participation is by donation.

Meet the Market

The OTFM-TC is a North American style market that celebrates the tradition and culture of Mexico's outdoor tianguis markets. It is also a registered non-profit/association civil organization that focuses on nurturing the entrepreneurial spirit of Puerto Vallartans. All OTFM-TC products are either locally grown or handmade within 75 kilometers of the city.

The OTFM-TC will be open 9:30-2 every Saturday, from November 7, 2015, to April 30, 2016. You'll find us in Lazaro Cárdenas Park, located in Vallarta's Emiliano Zapata neighborhood.
