Marsol Friday Market by the Pier: Herbal Chocolates?

Chocolates, handmade with Mexican cacao beans here in Vallarta and infused with herbal extracts are available in limited supply every Friday at Marsol Market. See Ricardo Mazcal for his latest invention – fantastic taste and super for little kids and the elderly who don’t like – or cannot – take their meds normally. Just one more way Ricardo is making Vallarta healthier 100% naturally.
Pattyjo loves to paint with watercolors and alcohol inks. She makes bookmarks, greeting cards in different sizes, canvasses suitable for framing, tee shirts and now switch plates! All of her pieces are singularly bright and beautiful. Her passion, however, is to help children with cancer on the long bus rides to and from Guadalajara for treatments. She makes up packages of papers, colored pencils and anything else she can think of and has on hand and gifts them to Pamela Thompson who distributes the packets for free to the kids to ease their boredom while they are traveling. All of Pattyjo’s profits are given up for charity.
See David and Elizabeth Ruesga for exquisite new offerings set in sterling silver. Dozens of new projects feature semi-precious stones and magnificent opals; they also have man-made stones and faceted glass designs for those on a budget, yet with exquisite taste in jewelry!
Other unique pieces can be found at Beach Booty with sea glass and sea tile pendants and earrings. Marcia continues to source antique silk to create lightweight collars for men and women.
The Marsol Friday Market by the Pier is open year-round from 9:30 am to 1:30 pm.
