La Cruz de Huanacaxtle, north of Puerto Vallarta on the Bay of Banderas, can now add a farmers/craft market to its list of attractions. Held every Sunday from 10 am until 2 pm, it is quickly growing each week, both in increasing numbers of vendors and visitors from the bay area.

Organic produce that could not be any fresher, tasty bakery items ranging from foccacia to empanadas, and handmade craft items are offered for sale under the ficus trees on the La Cruz plaza.
Organized by a group of local residents, the market offers a children’s activity program and live music from the gazebo. Tatewari, the local flamenco and jazz group, played on December 5th, the third Sunday for the market. Some items quickly sold out, like organic squash blossoms from San Jose, homemade coconut/almond body lotion and tasty fruit pie slices.
