Mazatlan’s New Organic Market

January 22, 2012

I know I mentioned before that we have a weekly organic market here in town.  Every Saturday until the end of May in the Plazuela Zaragoza from 8 am until noon you will find at the latest count about a dozen vendors selling their most excellent organic and homemade items.  You can read the M! Magazine article about the market/a> or if you’re on Facebook, like their Facebook page.

This week I came home with such great stuff!  Organic almond butter, shredded coconut, radishes, dried tomatoes, and Paul bought an organic chicken.

From memory, here is some of what you’ll find at the market.  There are new vendors every week, too.

Organic eggs, chicken, goat cheese, dried mangoes, dried tomatoes, every kind of vegetable, vegetable plants, worm castings, dried coconut, baked goods, coffee, almond & peanut butter, granola, vegie burgers, soap, and vegetable seeds.  The following photos tell the story!

More about Nancy

I'm Nancy, a US expat living in Mazatlán, México but excited about moving soon to México City.

    1. Lucky you, just one of the benefits of a warmr climate!

    1. Color me green with envy. We finally got a Ley supermarket and the next week a Santa Fe market opened up, but nothing like your organic market. Next time we sail to Maz I’ll have to go there for provisioning.

    1. Thank you Nancy for the article and the great pictures. Your support is very important to me and to the market in general. We are growing beyond expectations and are so excited.

    1. Terrific – we have a wonderful Saturday market much the same in Coatepec, Veracruz. Here in Puerto Escondido sadly we do not – but we have great winter weather like you. Spent a lot of vacation time in your town when I was younger (much). A wonderful town!

      1. Tancho, I wouldn’t trade you in the winter, you wouldn’t trade me in the summer! It’s pretty nice over here right now, I will say!

        1st Mate, You should read the M! article I linked to where Janet names the person who is knowledgeable about organic markets throughout Mexico. Maybe you guys in San Carlos could get one going too!

        BC, I am thrilled about the market, this is a big step for Mazatlan. Thank you so much for all you’ve done to get it off the ground.

        John, This market has really transformed being a food lover and vegetarian in this town for me. It’s wonderful.

    1. Wow. Can’t wait to visit this mercado in a few weeks. This site is a tremendous resource. I lived in Mazatlan most of every year from ’03 – ’08 before coming back to the states with my wife and son – both mazatlecos. (Alas, we’re not retired and it’s so much easier to provide for them stateside.) We’re getting ready for our first trip there in almost 4 years so I’ve been trying to get up to speed on how things have changed. I can’t recall anything like this blog and other online resources I’ve found in the last few weeks. Things have certainly evolved!

      1. Brian, Thanks so much for visiting the blog! I started the blog in October 2006, before we had even decided where in México we wanted to move. We moved to Mazatlán in September of 2007. There are almost 600 posts here so there is tons of information. I hope you have a wonderful trip, too!
