Marsol Friday Market by the Pier

The hotter it gets outside, the more welcoming the coolness of the adobe walls of the Marsol Hotel. Sea breezes naturally keep the inside cool and inviting.

Many responded to last week’s request to bring paintings, etchings, mosaics, drawings; all kinds of artists are interested in displaying their work at our market. Especially for our new expats who are flooding in, buying condos and houses. Now, how do you decorate those bare walls? We have home décor specialists who happen to also dabble in other fields and among the regular vendors at Marsol we have hundreds of tips on where to shop and exciting places you should know about if you’re new. You’ll find friendly Mexican artisans mixed in with a few Canadians and Americans. Don’t speak Spanish yet? No worries, everyone is bilingual and eager to get you settled.

For genuinely exquisite silver jewelry, see David and Elizabeth. This handsome couple design and make much of their inventory together. Trained initially as a goldsmith, David switched to silver when the price of gold became prohibitive. They accept credit cards and can help you through the process of buying fine sterling silver.

Besides, creams, lotions and shampoo in bars instead of throw-away plastic containers, Ricardo Mazcal’s extracts and tinctures are the backbone of his natural product line. From nail fungus to immediate relief from chronic and acute pain; talk to him, he can help.

The Marsol Friday Market by the Pier is open from 9:30 am to 1:30 pm all year-round.
