The seasonal market that assembles at Marina Vallarta’s spacious boardwalk is back in full swing on a weekly basis, Thursdays 6 - 10 pm, providing a great opportunity to get to know the neighborhood and shop for a few holiday treats.

This market, one of several that gather around the bay on an ongoing basis, features a variety of products, including home accents, handcrafted soaps, artisan breads and much more. But perhaps what makes this market stand out from others is its operating hours. Arrive in the afternoon before it starts, and enjoy walking along the promenade located next to the marina itself. Then, as the sun sets, consider staying for dinner at one of several outstanding eateries located in the same place.

While Marina Vallarta is primarily a residential neighborhood, an increasing number of fun shops and unique restaurants have progressively transformed it into more of a place to visit and explore in recent years. Several other cultural events, including art walks and outdoor film screenings take place on different evenings. Learn more about Marina Vallarta here.
