Tianguis Lo De Marcos Prepares for its Third Season

September 9, 2016

Scheduled to be held every Saturday from 9 am until 2 pm starting November 5, Tianguis Lo De Marcos expects to continue its history of drawing visitors from around Banderas Bay to Lo de Marcos, Nayarit.

Lo de Marcos, Nayarit, Mexico - On Saturday, November 5, 2016, The Tianguis Lo de Marcos will reopen its doors for its third season, and it promises to offer Vallarta-Nayarit locals and visitors another year of shopping pleasures and loads of treasures!

Imagine being able to buy such items as home made bake goods, custom made piņatas, hand blown glass, clothing, unique artisan items, garden fresh produce, fresh baked goods, salsas and more - all in a lovely courtyard that provides a comfortable outdoor shopping experience and lots of fun!

"This Season we will see the addition of more live music performances and a redesigned food court area with great food," said Armando Contreras, the event's organizer. "We're also working towards bringing in visiting Artisans from other parts of Mexico, which will be a great treat."

The tradition of buying and selling in temporary markets set up either on a regular basis (weekly, monthly, etc.) is a strong feature in much of Mexican culture and has a history that extends far back into the pre-Hispanic period. It was the most important form of commerce in the pre-Hispanic era, and after the Spanish Conquest, the Europeans mostly kept this tradition intact. For more on the history of Tianguis, click HERE.

"The Lo de Marcos Tianguis instills a sense of pride in our community and we are proud to see people from all over the Banderas Bay area come and visit every weekend. We are excited to see it return for the fall-winter seasons," stated Alonso Bravo, the Delegate of Lo De Marcos.

The Tianguis is the brainchild of Armando Contreras of Galvan Real Estate and Services, the town's Full Service Real Estate and Rental Agency. "I live in Lo De Marcos and can attest first hand to our communities need to support our residents, farmers and craftspeople through this venue while at the same time the Tianguis brings in items that are not available locally" remarked Armando.

Held each Saturday from 9:00 am until 2:00 pm, this weekly event expects to continue its growth and history of drawing visitors from around the Bay of Banderas.

Everyone is invited to stop in and enjoy this unique local market and have a great time!
