When we lived in London, every Saturday we'd stroll around the farmers' market at the end of our road. Coffees in hand, chatting and browsing (but never actually buying, London is expensive peeps).
So it was lovely to pick up this little tradition again here in Mexico at the Mercado del Pueblo in Sayulita. Plus everything's cheaper so we can actually buy stuff!
Sayulita is the next town along from where we are in San Pancho (full guide coming soon!). It's about 10 minutes on the bus down the coast, or an hour and a half hiking along a coastal jungle path.
Each Friday, 80 vendors selling handmade, organic products set up shop. There's live music and food and a lively atmosphere; it feels like the whole town is there. As well as organic produce, there are clothes stalls and people selling artwork, jewellery and essential oils. Our favourites: the sunflower seed bread, chocolates from Mexicolate, the homemade pickles and the salad lady (who grows her leaves just down the road).
Everything is made locally and it's a good way to support small businesses and pick up treats that are hard to find in Mexico.
The market is closed in the low season but will be starting up again in the first week of November, every Friday 10am – 2pm. You can find it on Calle Revolucion across the street from Galeria Tanana.
