Opening day for the 7th season of Mercado del Pueblo in Sayulita, Riviera Nayarit is October 30, 2015. We are so happy to be the inspiration for other markets and part of offering local, organic products in the Bahia de Banderas!

In 2009, I was having lunch with a friend in Sayulita. We spoke about our fantasy jobs; things we would do if we had all the time in the world. I said "I would open up a farmer's market in town so we could actually find organic products." My friend then informed me that that was just what we were going to do.

Four weeks later, we had a small group of market organizers, 6 vendors, and a borrowed, vacant lot that was overgrown and often stank of animal droppings.

By the end of our first season, we had 16 vendors and a large group of locals who depended on us for organic, natural, and local products.

The years that followed included lots of moves, lots of visits to farms, and lots of community meetings.

All of this led us to the market that we are today. We are proud to have brought healthy awareness and food products to Sayulita and to witness this movement flourish as products are adopted by local stores and restaurants.

Currently, the Mercado del Pueblo is located on calle Revolucion just north of the main bridge, across from Galeria Tanana and hosts nearly 80 vendors.

In addition to providing natural, organic, and unique products, the Mercado has become a critical, weekly event that brings together friends, food, live music, and education to its residents and visitors.

For more information about the market, visit Mercado del Pueblo.

Join us in Sayulita every Friday from October 30 through April at 10:00 am until 2:00 pm.
