This was my first visit to the Saturday Market Co-op. It was a very pleasant way to spend a Saturday morning. Beautiful baked goods, fruits and vegetables, and so much delicious food to purchase and eat. My husband and I shared a Thi dinner of chicken with peanut sauce and a couple of egg rolls.The sauce had a little heat... More

The best homemade pickles in PV, silk handmade flowers for my hair, cakes, breads, lots of goodies to purchase! Take your own bag to schlep your goodies home! Good pulled pork (Sunny is now gone from there), but great other food to sit and eat....worth stopping by.

We have been going to the "big" Saturday market on Old Town/PV for several years - at the base of Basillio Badio - a wonderful place with good merchandise and interesting local foods BUT.... this year we discovered the "other" Saturday market open one hour earlier (9AM) - but closes one hour earlier as well -- four blocks further south...

Well worth your finding this farmers' market near PV's Los Muertos beach. While not a lot of vendors, they are high quality and great values abound.

Today I visited the co-op. It's right across from Cocos Kitchen in old town. I was greeted with many people sampling various foods, buying jewelry, handmade soaps, clothing and various other home-made items. I loved it. There sure is a lot there. I practically wiped out the homemade soap guys supply, lol. This is not a huge place to walk... More

While many businesses in Puerto Vallarta scale back during the "slow" season, and many close for vacation, anywhere from 4 weeks to 4 months, the Saturday Market Co-op remains open to the public. I go to shop for anything from bagels to fresh produce, and to spend a few hours meeting friends, having coffee and/or a light lunch. I prefer... More

We were under the impression that this was a bountiful market with fresh produce and locals shopping there, when in fact it was more like a small collection of vendors selling their crafts and homemade foods. It is quite small (about 20 small tables inside a community center) -- and while perfectly pleasant, not something I would put at the... More

We're sorry that you were disappointed, but this is mid-August. Other markets are closed until November but we are open all year. Everything in Puerto Vallarta is either scaled back for the off-season or closed. During the Nov-May season we have 50-60 vendors. There are other markets with over 100 vendors. This time of year we have about 20-22. Many... More

Could count the amount of stores on two hands. By all the reviews I would think there is more than we saw. Wrong time of year I'm guessing? If that's all it was, don't get too excited. Americans selling crafts at American prices.

You must have been at some other market. Of course it is the summer season and there are many fewer residents and tourists, however we have had more than 30 vendors every Saturday, more than half of whom are Mexican nationals who provide a wide variety of foods and crafts that are unique in Vallarta. So if you could count... More

There is even a Jewish lady selling pate and other delicacies. The... More
