Puerto Vallarta, Mexico - Valentine's Day is just around the corner, and what better way to share the love with friends and family than to visit Vallarta's new "buy local" market, Mercado Los Mangos? Meet up with your sweetie, take in the beauty of the day, dance to live music and join in the creativity at the children's crafting tent! Then scoop up all sorts of one-of-a-kind fashions, accessories and pet treats.
When you're ready to dine, check out the "made on site" foods and flavored waters or shop for organic honey, Greek Style yogurt, fermented foods, sauces and dips, sweet and savory baked goods, bread, tortillas and popsicles.
Then top off your pre-Valentine's market day with something truly extraordinary: the divine flavors of Xocodiva Artisan Chocolates, which can only be found at Mercado Los Mangos.
Meet Xocodiva Artisan Chocolates
An elegantly wrapped box of Xocodiva Artisan Chocolates is ideal for those who want to share something extraordinary. Whether you're searching for the perfect hostess gift, celebrating a special occasion, or bringing the "Food of the Gods" to a loved one this Valentine's Day, the gift of Xocodiva chocolate will reflect your style and complement your sentiments.
The variety of chocolates and confections also make great gifts for those back home. Choose from a selection of hand wrapped bars, almond barks and their famous butter pecan toffee. While shopping in town or for those planning to travel, ice packs are available to ensure that your chocolates arrive home in perfect condition, every time.
Mercados Los Mangos is open every Saturday from 9:30 am to 2:00 pm through the last Saturday in May. It is located at Av. Francisco Villa 1001 in Colonia Versalles, just before the turn to Costco.
