Dia de Mercado! (July 10):
Watch (or be watched on) our new mercado webcam this coming Saturday, July 11. If you can’t make it to the market, sneak a peak on the web. The address for the webcam is www.oldtownfm.com/webcam. This week we will be strolling around the market with the webcam so viewers can see life up close. Let us know what you think.
We are also are continuing for all gringos free Spanish lessons at the Market. Quickly and painlessly learn how to say “how much,” “thank you,” “chavatta” or “ice cream” in Spanish.
Para todos los paisanos, ofrecemos clases gratuitas de Inglés. Rápidamente aprenden a decir “cuánto,” “gracias,” “chavatta,” o “helado” en Inglés.
These classes are total immersion and all you have to do to participate is to begin speaking to the vendor(s) of your choice.
All of the great cities of the world have a celebrated Farmers’ Market where locals and tourists can find the freshest of vegetables, hand-crafted artisanal foods and handicrafts: London has Covent Garden, Seattle has Pike Place Market, Vancouver has Granville Island, New Orleans has the French Market and now Puerto Vallarta has the Old Town Farmers’ Market.
Every Saturday, from 10 am to 1 pm, the new Paradise Community Center at Pulpito #127 (across from Coco’s Restaurant) will come alive with the sights and smells of a good old-fashioned Farmers’ Market.
Only the freshest and finest fruits and vegetables, herbs and plants, preserves, coffee, organic products, baked goods (including diabetic and gluten free) and crafts will be available for sale. Come browse the colorful tables showcasing unique homemade products all fresh from the oven or field.
Just imagine the rich aromas from the lavish displays: warm baked goods, tangy fruit, freshly roasted coffees and fragrant herbs. Now you can experience this blend of fresh shopping and entertainment every Saturday in Old Town Puerto Vallarta.
Join us every Saturday, starting March 27, from 10 am to 1 pm at the new Paradise Community Center located at Pulpito #127 (across from Coco’s Restaurant) for Puerto Vallarta’s own Old Town Farmers’ Market – a true thrill for the senses.
