The non-profit organization Peace Punta de Mita—which develops several community and educational programs aimed at children and families at the north of Banderas Bay—has announced their Community Market to be held on Saturday July 1st starting at 8:00am at the Nuevo Corral del Risco parking lot.

The event will feature stalls with delicious food, local products and live music. All proceeds will go directly to development and community projects in the Punta de Mita area.

Founded by a group of expats and foreign residents in the Punta Mita development, since 2013 Peace Punta de Mita has benefited the communities of Nuevo Corral del Risco and Emiliano Zapata (an area most commonly known as Punta de Mita) through the implementation of programs that nurture empowerment and personal development, such as the English language training and free computing classes.

The Community Market is the result of their program “Champions”, which involves local, outstanding secondary school students in the improvement of their neighborhoods.
