Puerto Vallarta, Mexico - Opening day of Puerto Vallarta's newest outdoor market, Mercado Los Mangos, was a huge success! Nearly 700 visitors came out to shop from a wide variety of locally produced artisan products, to eat international dishes and to dance to the live music.
Garcia continues: "We are hoping the market brings more individuals and families from our surrounding neighborhoods to the library and to the programs we offer. Saturday, we saw many new faces both at the market and inside the library."
Since 1996, the library has been an essential part of Puerto Vallarta's culture. It is the only one of its kind in the region, with more than 30,000 volumes in Spanish and English and 4,500 monthly individual services. It's children's reading room, dance studio, audio/video library, multipurpose rooms, and classrooms host conferences, exhibitions and meetings for national and international artists.
At Mercado Los Mangos you'll find freshly prepared and "made on site" foods, including Mexican and Argentinean, organic honey, Greek Style yogurt, fermented foods, sauces and dips, flavored waters, sweet and savory baked goods, bread, tortillas and popsicles.
You will also find one-of-a-kind fashions, accessories, and pet treats and supplies. If you're a chocolate lover, be sure to look for Xocodiva's chocolates and confections.
Be sure to join us this Saturday for more "buy local" fun, live entertainment, and crafting for children! Mercados Los Mangos will be open every Saturday from 9:30 am to 2:00 pm through the last Saturday in May 2017. Biblioteca Los Mangos is located at Av. Francisco Villa 1001, Col. Versalles, Puerto Vallarta.
