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.

“One of the biggest benefits of advertising our business in Vallarta Lifestyles is the presence of our brand aimed to the audience we are looking for. It is a reliable and professional magazine that has helped us with the marketing of our restaurant several times, through well done photography or articles. We feel that we understand each other.”

“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.”

“When I first opened my gallery in 1986, my relationship with Vallarta Lifestyles started for the need of people to know me and, because it is one of the very few quality publications in the destination, I decided to advertise in it. There are clients that still remember me for the magazine, with whom I have had several years of relationship.”
