Marsol Friday Market by the Pier: Care Packages

Patty Jo makes “Care Packages” that she donates to kids battling cancer. Sick children living in Vallarta often have to travel to Guadalajara by bus to receive treatments. The five-hour-long ride can be dull and boring, so Patty Jo’s gift bags ease that pain, at least. All profits from her sales at Marsol Market go to buy small but useful items for her goodie bags. They include crayons and educational coloring books; some simple hygiene products including toothbrush and kid’s toothpaste, Kleenex, lip balm, anti-bacterial gel and a small bar of hypoallergenic soap. Also, every bag has a stuffed animal suitable for hugging before, during and after the long trip. Visit Patty Jo’s table every Friday for fun art, hand-painted cards and remember, every peso goes to help kids with cancer.
Bratwurst is coming to Market! See Barbara’s table for freshly made sausage right alongside the best tasting pickled beets in the world!
Come early to Market if you love chocolate! Real, handmade Mexican chocolate infused with Ricardo’s extracts and tinctures. Medicine has never tasted so good!
Beach Booty expands its inventory! Recent hauls of sea glass have been tremendous and what they do with their new-found beauties has to be seen in person.
Visit Marsol Market for additional items, including new and used clothing, shoes, handmade leather bags, and much more; different each week. Marsol is also welcoming new artisans every Friday.
The Marsol Friday Market by the Pier is open year-round from 9:30 am to 1:30 pm.
