Coming Soon on Saturday November 7th, The Tianguis Lo de Marcos will reopen its doors for the Season!
The Tianguis Lo de Marcos is set in a lovely courtyard and is a comfortable outdoor shopping experience with many unique vendors and lots of fun! Imagine being able to buy such items as Home Made Cookies, Custom Made Piñatas, Hand Blown Glass, Clothing, Unique Artisan items, Garden Fresh Produce, Freshly Baked Delicacies and more, all in Lo de Marcos, located in beautiful Riviera Nayarit commencing in November.

"This Season we will see the addition of more Live Music Performances and a redesigned Food Court Area with great food," said Armando Contreras, the Event's Organizer.
The tradition of buying and selling in temporary markets set up either on a regular basis (weekly, monthly, etc.) is a strong feature in much of Mexican culture and has a history that extends far back into the pre-Hispanic period. It was the most important form of commerce in the pre-Hispanic era, and after the Spanish Conquest, the Europeans mostly kept this tradition intact.

"The Tianguis of Lo de Marcos instills a sense of pride to our community and we are proud to see people from all over the municipality come and visit every weekend. We are excited to see it return for the fall-winter seasons," stated Alonso Bravo the Delegado of Lo de Marcos.

The Tianguis is the brainchild of Armando Contreras of Galvan Real Estate and Services, the town´s Full Service Real Estate and Rental Agency. "I Live in Lo de Marcos and can attest first hand to our communities need to support our residents, farmers and craftspeople thru this venue while at the same time the Tianguis brings in items to the town that are not available locally" remarked Armando.

Held each Saturday from 9:00 am until 2:00 pm this weekly event expects to continue its growth and history of drawing visitors from around the Banderas Bay.
