Saturday Farmer’s Market and Wednesday Art Walk Return

by Craig Zabransky on November 28, 2011

Sometimes when we head to a destination we learn about events that happened last week or are slated for the week after our departure. Disappointing. But thankfully certain events occur weekly in Puerto Vallarta and are available to visitors all (high) season long. Two such events that returned this year are the Historic Center Art Walk and the Old Town Farmers Market.

Wednesday: Historic Center Art Walk

This season nine galleries signed up to be part of the Art Walk. Each and every Wednesday from November to the end of May visitors can search for inspiring pieces of art and walk between the participating galleries. On display patrons will enjoy sculptures, paintings, ceramics and exhibitions from local, national and international artists.  Entrance is free and so is the wine.

So on Wednesday evenings between the hours of 6pm and 10pm take a stroll through the old city historic center and enjoy the Historic Center Art Walk

Saturday: Old Town Farmer’s Market

In it’s 3rd season and at a new location, on Pino Suarez between B. Badillio and V. Carranza, the local farmer’s market continues to expand. With its mantra “make it, bake it, grow it” the producers only market give access to sellers within 50 kilometers of Puerto Vallarta and each vendor sets up shop to sell to both locals and tourists alike.  Shoppers, will find handmade crafts, fresh farm produce and most everything in between all locally sourced from the Bay of Banderas region.

The market is open each Saturday between the hours of 10am to 2pm and is quickly becoming a place to spend one’s Saturday morning.
