Lo De Marcos in Riviera Nayarit hosted its first Tianguis last week and it was well received by everyone in attendance.

The weekly event is quickly gaining the support of the town´s Merchants several of whom reported increased sales driven by the appearance of new faces in the Pueblo.

This next Saturday, the Tianguis will be bursting at the seams with additional Vendors in both the Artisan and Food Court Areas. The Bar which is next to the Food Court has been expanded to allow for additional seating.
Claudia Curtis, the Market Coordinator, feels that each week we will see additional vendors and enhancements to the Tianguis as she and her team are busy at work with decorations themed for the upcoming Holidays, the selection of additional Live Music, On location Radio Broadcasts and much more.
Claudia stated "There are so many extraordinary things to purchase and foods to enjoy that it´s hard to believe that I get paid to shop."
This Saturday, The Tianguis is pleased to feature the live music of Son Tres from San Pancho. This upbeat Trio will be performing from 11:00 am until 2:00 in the afternoon when the Market closes. Son Tres plays something for everyone and never disappoints the audience.
