La Cruz Storefront and Online Store Now Carries Items from the Sunday Market

Amigos de La Cruz
November 2, 2017

You might remember Mayra Franco as one of the group that spearheaded creating and designing the park for youth. It didn’t stop there, raising funds was huge and she and many other dedicated folks held an art show and other events to raise the money and then gathered volunteers together to build it. A major endeavor that is adored by so many!

Mayra also organized and led the Amigos de La Cruz summer school. When I asked her why she gets involved she told me; “Kids are always open to have fun and they adore new experiences doing something different with direction and purpose. I like to work with and for the kids and I have experience doing that.”

And… or you may recognize her name as one of the founders of the La Cruz Sunday Market. Mayra is still one of the main people who organizes and runs the market making it the success that it is.

Every time I talk to Mayra I’m inspired! She’s humble and as the saying goes “Still waters run deep,” she always has new and exciting ideas running through her mind, then she finds a way to get it done and all her efforts are toward bettering our community of La Cruz. If you come across her, please, give her great big thanks!

Now, to tie it all together Mayra has opened a storefront that will showcase the works of the amazingly talented artisans that we all love, adore and purchase from every week. I don’t know about you but often during the week I wish I could just go buy something I saw on Sunday. Well, now we can!!

The concept for the store evolved 8 years since the opening of the Sunday market because folks kept asking “Why isn´t it open during the whole year or where can I get some of the products when the market is closed.”

When I asked who will display their pieces in the studio Mayra said “The space is not big as I wish but I´m working to have all categories from the market; clothing, sandals, packaged food, personal care items, jewelry, handcrafts, accessories and even items for pets. I intend to include a few items from other producers not at the market as well.”

My usual desire throughout the week is for food items so I asked Mayra if she’ll provide those; “Yes, I´ll have some packaged food; coffee, dried fruits, Italian sausages, salami, hummus, jams, and some other surprises. The idea is to increase the list as per clients requests.”

As it’s her ‘baby’ Mayra will run the store working from Monday to Friday with help from others on Saturday and as needed. She´ll have home delivery for customer’s convenience as well.

You can find the store beside the entrance to La Puntilla and across from OXXO. She is open from Monday to Friday; 8 – 2 and 4 – 6 and on Saturdays from 8 – 2.

We also have a website where customers can view our goods and we offer home delivery. Visit La Cruz Market Online or telephone (329) 295-5988 / (322) 289-3101.

On Sundays people can visit the market from 9 am to 3 pm (longer hours this year) - open November through April.

Everyone is welcome to La Tienda La Cruz Market and some of the products can be made especially for you!
