Municipal Market

Municipal Market Puerto Vallarta

The Municipal Market of Colonia Emiliano Zapata. From 6am – 3pm.

Fruit & Vegtables, Puerto Vallarta.

Our Municipal Market is a truly wonderful place to do your shopping, beautiful fresh produce, so colourful you need to bring your camera with you.

A lot of the stores sell what people now call ‘bulk’ because it isn’t packaged, but that’s how most people in the world shop. You will not see much plastic wrap here.

One morning at 10am I was buying a chicken from Yuya “The Chicken Lady”and I asked when was this chicken running around ? “A las 3 in la Mañana” she said! ( at 3am) Can’t get much fresher than that!

Practically everything you need can be found here, including household items, but we concentrated on food here.
The Municipal Market is a square building with a central courtyard, including a water basin, surrounded by various vendors.
It’s located on Lázaro Cárdenas at Camachin, MAP. It’s a Local Market, so it opens around 6am and closes around 3pm, 365 days a year!
There are more vendors on the outside and in the surrounding area, including several food restaurants in the inland side of the market.

Delicatessen ? Cremería Diana Y Susy

Owners, Enrique and Esmeralda, who both speak excellent English, provide an amazing variety of items, that many people travel a long way to find, usually only found in “gourmet’ stores, like Half & Half, Nice Bacon sliced to your thickness, a variety of Hams & Cheeses.
They also have some unique items you won’t even find in a gourmet store, like: Home Made Butter, Yogurt & Cream from El Tuito, Home Made Salsas and Ranch Eggs.
