Handicrafts, organic products, home-cooked food, jewelry, pottery, locally-designed clothes and  accessories are some of the things you can purchase at local tianguis or farmers’ markets. Most of these lively, outdoor commercial areas are open for the winter-spring season, which runs from November to the end of April or the beginning of May.

Farmers’ markets in Banderas Bay have become great attractions as they feature shopping, dining, and activities such as yoga classes and live music. There are over ten of these in Riviera Nayarit alone.

Check out the list below:

Its content has always been excellent, due to the quality of its articles and spectacular photos. For the type of readers that it reaches, this the ideal publication to advertise our listings.”

“We started advertising in Vallarta Lifestyles because we really liked the quality. Actually, it is still the best magazine of Puerto Vallarta, because of its spectacular articles and photos. Thanks to its distribution points at famous hotels, it is the ideal publication to reach the clients we are looking for.”

“Vallarta Lifestyles, from its inception has been a quality reference. In some way, it has managed to consolidate the destination because all our restaurants where there and we communicate as an exchange platform. The benefit, besides advertisement and recommendation, is that this publication is a solid copy of Puerto Vallarta’s evolution. If you pick up an old issue, immediately you’ll recall precious memories.”
