Sayulita’s Mercado del Pueblo

I picked a great winter to skip. Every time I hear the words polar vortex I congratulate myself for having the great taste to skip out on winter this year (hate me if you want, but know I still didn’t get off scott free). I miss some things, like warm hearty soups, christmas music and cuddling by the fireplace, but then I see the weather report back home and I am patting myself on the back all over again.

Because instead we have this:

And we have one of the best parts of summer right at our doorstep: a weekly farmer’s market.

Every Friday we visit Sayulita’s Mercado de Pueblo, a locally run market featuring handicrafts, produce and prepared food from all sorts of surrounding businesses and artisans. The stalls run the gamut from home-made dog treats to organic strawberries to fresh falafel. 

It’s always a treat, the only place in town where we can purchase “non-mexican” treats like hummus, quinoa and freshly ground coffee. We typically have lunch there: hearty italian sausage sandwiches, home-made tamales or mexican fusion egg rolls.

On Friday afternoons nearly everyone in town is either manning a booth or browsing the market. Local bands play and collect donations and half a dozen town dogs run amok begging for bits of our sandwich. It embodies the eclectic, hippie dippie, international spirit of Sayulita and never fails to make me happy.

the best sandwich outside of Italy

The hummus guys! Jalapeno hummus or chipotle? Hard decisions.

You better believe I now own a pair of these.

This week was Argentinean Rock

The Mercado de Pueblo is open every Friday from 10-2 during the high season. You can follow along on their facebook page for updates.

I’m reading this from the frozen clutches of DC, crying tears of ice. You definitely picked the right winter to move south of the border!

I love it! My mom is heading to Puerto Vallarta on Sunday and I’m so jealous. I’d love to travel in her suitcase and take a side trip to Sayulita. Great photos!

Your posts remind me how much I liked Sayulita! I really love that first photo with the birds. It’s strange how much Sayulita and Goa are alike- the hippy vibe, macrame jewelry, loads of foreigners, even that sandwich, (if that’s beetroot) although I’ve never seen an organic superfood here haha

Market photos are my absolute favorite thing lately. Awesome post!

(And I skipped this winter in the midwest, too, thank goodness. Hah!)

Farmers’ markets are just the best… Especially where epic sandwiches can be found.
