Winter is almost here and with it comes the best time of the year when it comes to tourism, which is why the Riviera Nayarit’s micro destinations are firing up their organic or artisanal farmers’ markets, or tianguis, offering tourists another fun attraction.

Most of these bustling commercial areas open for business in November and welcome visitors through the end of April or beginning of May of next year. Handicrafts, organic products, home-cooked food, accessories, jewelry, pottery, yoga classes, live music and more are for sale. Heading from south to north, here is a list of the most relevant:

Nuevo Vallarta’s Riviera Nayarit Farmers’ Market is held every Tuesday from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the parking lot at the Business Center; on Saturdays the Tianguis Artesanal Nuevo Vallarta is held at the Marina Nuevo Vallarta with the same hours.

There are three tianguis held in Bucerías, all on Lázaro Cárdenas street: On Mondays it’s the aptly named Monday Market and on Wednesdays it’s Forever Spring, both from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.; in the afternoons visitors can browse the Bucerías Art Walk.

The Cruz Sunday Market graces the Marina Riviera Nayarit in La Cruz de Huanacaxtle on Sundays from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Nearby, the always-open Mercado del Mar welcomes those in search of fresh seafood.

Sayulita and its Mercado del Pueblo await visitors on Fridays from 10 a.m. to 2 pm. on Revolución street while the Mercado del Sol in San Pancho is open at the Plaza del Sol on Tuesdays during the same time period.

The Tianguis Lo de Marcos is held on Luis Echeverría street on Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.

The municipality of Compostela’s Rincón de Guayabitos has joined in with its Guayabitos Market on the main plaza in town on Mondays; La Peñita de Jaltemba opens its La Peñita Market on Thursdays on its main plaza. Both are held from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. The Chacala Cultural Market is opening on Saturdays starting on November 19th, from9:00am to 1:00pm in the main Plaza.

I recently had the opportunity to have breakfast with two special representatives of these incredible islands. Lynette Harrigan, who is the go to for all things BVI and Tausha Vanterpool, who is our Business Developement Manager for the BVI. We discussed the events that were going on and the must do things while there in the islands.

WOW! I was so excited to be asked.  I learned so much about the destination and the people who call it home.
