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.

“In a meeting that we had with the magazine’s founder, he told us about his dream of making a quality and luxury publication because he was convinced that Puerto Vallarta needed that. For that reason, we have advertised in Vallarta Lifestyles since its beginnings. These days, our brand is very well positioned thanks to the strategic distribution of the magazine, as it helps us reach more potential customers which is a great benefit for us.”

“Vallarta Lifestyles is really well positioned. We are aware of that because we have seen people who arrive to our jewelry with the issue or the advertising in hand asking about the product that is featured there. This dynamic is really interesting for us and makes us glad.”

“Without doubt, Vallarta Lifestyles is the best positioned Magazine in the region. Its solid presence keeps a strong and always fresh vision about the destination, as well as activities. Besides, I consider it a great intellectual contribution for the well written articles that are in each issue.”
