La Cruz de Huanacaxtle, Nayrit, Mexico


One of the many delights of staying in La Cruz is the Sunday market at the marina. It is THE place to go on Sundays. Those who are in the know go early. Although it doesn't open until 10, some of the most popular venders sell out before noon. We make an early run for bread, dill, baklava, lamb empanadas, and strawberries.






 
 

After taking those purchases back to the boat, we return to the market for a more leisurely stroll from one end to the other. It is a delight for the senses; bright colors, live music and dance, exotic smells, and tasty food samples.



In addition to fresh produce and herbs, honey, a fish market, and hand crafted foods there are high quality arts and crafts including beautiful jewelry, textiles, paintings, pottery, tapestries, leather footwear, and so much more.








La Cruz has quickly become one of my favorite places of this journey.
