Puerto Vallarta’s Farmer’s Market

What a wonderful new addition to the Puerta Vallarta food and cultural scene the new Framers Market is (it opened in March).  Most of the vendors here are organic, the prices are great and the products are of a very high quality.  In addition to produce and artisanal foodstuffs, there are also a lot of beautiful crafts. Apparently this is its second season, but last year I wasn’t here on a Saturday so I missed it.

The Farmer’s Market is held every Saturday at the Paradise Community Center at 127 Pulpito Street just across the street from Coco’s Kitchen (a lovely place that has been known for their breakfasts and is now serving dinner)

The Old Town Farmers market has very limited hours so go early as it is only open from 10am-1pm.

The crowd this morning was great (sometimes I think everyone in PV has a dog!) and these pictures are only a fraction of how many vendors attend.  I mostly focused on the food sellers that interested me with a few of the crafts people whose work I really liked.

As I sit and type this at my dinning table the aroma from the Pineapple I bought yesterday is filling the air and I’m thinking a Pina Margarita is in my future.  I bought sugar to make a simple syrup to which I will add a lot of fresh lime juice then a generous handful of chopped up pineapple.  Throw it all into the blender with some ice and tequila, maybe a splash of Grand Marnier and you have one fine drink, not to mention the perfect end to an evening!

About urbanfoodguy

I'm a self taught cook with a dedication to buying and eating food that is as humanely and sustainably raised as possible. Which is why in addition to recipes you will see a lot of environmental/political reporting here. I started cooking when I was about 6, it's something I always loved to do. Watching Graham Kerr - aka "The Galloping Gourmet" - was what got me started and I have never really looked back. Over the years I've been a private chef, a caterer, and a food stylist for magazines such as Bon Appétit, Food & Wine, Real Simple, Oprah, Martha Stewart's Everyday Food and many more. I've also worked in the prep kitchen for the Food Network on the Bobby Flay and Paula Deen shows. Now I work at home in my kitchen sharing with you here recipes that I create or that other people have created that inspire me and I think you will like. I love my neighborhood (the Lower East Side of Manhattan) and I love to travel. Because NYC is such a big place I tend to focus mostly on my 'hood and the ones that are close by: The East Village, Bowery, Chinatown and Williamsburg. My love of travel has no limits really, I'm always ready to get on a plane. I was lucky enough to have a business for many years that allowed me to spend a lot of time in South East Asia. These days I've been spending time in Mexico, Germany, Canada and the West Coast of the U.S., but check back you never know where I might end up. I do consulting, cooking classes, and freelance lifestyle writing so if you are interested please send me a note: urbanfoodguy@gmail.com
