The Marsol Friday Market by the Pier

Marcia Blondin

Our fifth year begins at the historic Marsol Hotel by the Pier. As in the past, we bring unusual, often unique products to Vallarta’s tourists and residents.

Many of our vendors return year after year: Barbara Peters with fine art, pickled beets, and jewelry; Kim with baked treats for humans and dogs that literally drag their humans to her table!

Sherry Vallarta with home décor advice and also the hostess of our monthly bazaars; David and Elizabeth Ruesga, our resident silversmith/designers of jewelry that cover all price points, and Ricardo Mazcal, our herbalist who has never met a malady he can’t treat.

Marsol offers food, cotton clothing for men, women, and kids. We have leather handbags and purses; canvas beach bags – some of them hand-painted. We have decorative tiles, a chef who will cater to your house parties, and beach cover-ups you will live in even when far away from the sea.

We have wine/gift bags, fabulous antique/collectible jewelry, sea glass, and a TV guru.

Organic coffee grown high in the mountains of Chiapas, hand-picked, and shipped to Vallarta, where it is roasted in a wood-burning oven and ground to perfection by Ausel whose family has had the plantation for generations. Husband Alan makes peanut brittle from a 100-year-old recipe that he sold door to door as a child growing up in Louisianna.

The Friday Marsol Market by the Pier is open year-round from 9:30 am to 1:30 pm.
