Take some time away from the madding crowds on Playa Los Muertos and the Pier and slip into the lobby of one of Vallarta’s oldest beach hotels. Enjoy the coolness of the thick adobe walls and take your time walking through our year-round Market offering goods and services not found anywhere else. You will find Mexican silver jewelry, traditional nuts and candies, textiles, and herbal extracts to cure what ails you. Venezuelan food and products served up by gorgeous people from that country famous for its beauties.
Summer is coming to Vallarta with the heat and humidity rising each month. See Elizabeth – one of our newest vendors – for her handmade cooling ties that will lower your body temperature immediately. Choose from lots of bright, exciting patterns; these are lovely gifts for your gardener and housekeeper and if that means you then buy two!
If you are not familiar with Bark Art, then check it out at Marsol Friday Market. Stunning results from a long and involved process that begins with mashing up tree bark. An ancient art revived and thriving in Vallarta. Huichol Art is well-represented as well. Often you can watch Hilario affix tiny glass beads with beeswax to a figure of a deer or jaguar, both sacred symbols of their culture.
The Marsol Friday Market by the Pier is open year-round from 9:30 am to 1:30 pm.
