Local artisans are ready to seduce all those looking for handmade, one-of-a-kind products in Puerto Vallarta.

Every Saturday morning from autumn to spring, the Olas Altas Farmers’ Market takes place at Plaza Lázaro Cárdenas in colonia Emiliano Zapata. It brings together an interesting bunch of local artisans who showcase all kinds of products at their stands, appealing hundreds of local and foreign visitors.

Without a doubt this is one of the most anticipated ongoing events for the season because it offers the opportunity to purchase unconventional, handmade accessories, as well as organic food, art pieces by independent artists and natural healthcare products.

Encouraged by the opportunity to meet new vendors and see the new items on display, we visited the market a few weeks ago. Check out what we found!

We hope you feel inspired and plan on attending this week’s event.

Taiyari Tortillas

Handmade tortillas made with different types of corn grown in El Tuito, a small town located approximately one hour south of Puerto Vallarta.

Taiyari Tortillas are cooked on a comal, which is a traditional flat griddle.
