La Luna Christmas Market in Old Town Vallarta

The Holidays are upon us. The Christmas lights are up, the tree is decorated and the rum is discretely mixed with the eggnog.

Detailed Christmas lists are being created by children everywhere and parents are running from one mega store to the next doing their best to get every item their little angels want (within reason).

This Holiday season, Chef Miriam Flores has something in mind for Christmas shoppers other than the mad scrambling to find the latest iPod, iPad or iPhone.

Inspired by a Christmas market she visited in Munich, Germany, she is hosting a local Artisan Christmas Market at La Luna Restaurant on Sunday December 16 and Monday December 17, from 5:00 to 10:00 pm.

The market will feature items that you can't find at big chain stores. These items don't require apps, upgrades or operating systems.

The things you will find at the La Luna Christmas Market are hand-made and locally produced. These items hark back to a simpler time where a gift was given in the spirit of giving, generosity and thought.

Too often we look to big chain stores and their one-stop-shop convenience to get all of our Christmas shopping done. If you have been paying attention to the news in the US and abroad lately, these chain stores lay the burden of their thrifty convenience on their employees.

La Luna's Christmas market is about supporting small, independent retailers and artisans. These businesses are what make our world go round and supporting them is putting food on their tables, gas in their tanks and smiles on their faces.

In the spirit of Christmas, the market will also feature Holiday-oriented cuisine and beverages. Favorites like mulled wine, pumpkin pie and Christmas ham will be available at the Luna kitchen.

Vendors will be set up in La Luna's courtyard, selling crafts and traditional Mexican food items such as tamales and atole. This is a family-oriented market and La Luna encourages you to bring the whole gang.

Like all special Holiday events, La Luna's Christmas market is benefiting local charities such as Families at the Dump, Investours and Children's shelters, with a toy drive and donations,  

There is no price of admission and the Market will close promptly at 10:00 pm both nights.

La Luna is located at 466 Venustiano Carranza in the Old Town Vallarta Romantic Zone on the south side of town. Telephone is (322) 223-5612 or cell is 044 (322) 194-7142. Email is lalunapv@gmail.com.
