Last Chance to Enjoy the OTFM-TC's Seventh Season

April 21, 2016

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 30, 2016.

Puerto Vallarta, Mexico - The last shopping day (April 30) of our 7th season is fast approaching, so be sure to join us this Saturday for high-quality "make it, bake it, grow it" products and services. We have 90+ booths filled with farm-fresh produce, regional plants and flowers, fine jewelry and clothing, natural body products, traditional Mexican hand crafts and beautiful art pieces. We also have live music, a cool downtown vibe and a smorgasbord of ready-made artisan and international foods!

A Special Thanks

While here, connect with our volunteers and staff. You'll spot them in the green colored shirts around the market and at the information booth. They'll happily show you around and share historical tidbits. Each week they help to set up and take down all the tents, tables and chairs. We simply couldn't do what we do without them, and wish to extend a heartfelt "thank you" to the entire administrative team.

We'd also like to express our deepest appreciation for this season's vendors and entertainers. They are the heart and soul of the market, and their dedication continues to inspire us.

Finally, we must thank our loyal shoppers. You help make dreams come true for so many. We wish you all the best in the summer months, and look forward to seeing you next season, November 5th to April 29th, 2017.

Meet the Vendors

The Old Town Farmers Market-Tianguis Cultural has been a non-profit organization since June 2014. The Market is managed by a Board of Directors, an administration team and a volunteer Vendor Selection Committee. The committee - comprised of vendors and community representatives - volunteer many hours each season to vet all new vendor applications.

Many vendors came to the market with a single business idea. Now they are financially self-sufficient, supporting their families from their market income. All vendors are registered, tax-paying business owners who live within 75 kilometers of Puerto Vallarta. Seventy-one percent are nationals, and twenty-nine percent are from Thailand, Britain, Canada, Taiwan, Australia, Argentina, Chile and the United States.

If you're smitten by a particular product or service, you might be able to access it during the summer break. Many of our vendors sell online, deliver, make house calls or have brick-and-mortar stores to keep you happy and healthy.

Money Matters

The OTFM-TC contributes over $7 million pesos annually directly to the local community. The ripple effect then touches the lives of tens of thousands of locals. Earlier this year, the market donated $30,000 pesos to the Asociacion de Vecinos de la Col. Emiliano Zapata (the local Business Association) for improvements in our neighborhood.

But Wait, There's More

And finally, we want to applaud the local businesses around our Saturday location, Lazaro Cardenas Park. We are thrilled to partner with you in sharing the beauty, charm and talent of our community with national and international visitors.

You're Invited!

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. For only 14 pesos an hour, you can park in the garage directly beneath park. Public buses and taxis also come this way with a Pino Suarez Street drop off.
