Starting at 5:00 Friday afternoon, Puerto Magico’s Magic Market and Festival will host a special celebration bringing food, fun, and fabulous artisan products for you to enjoy.
Over 100 vendors will be attending offering authentic Mexican goods and freshly cooked food, something for everyone’s food and artistic palettes. Delight yourself with traditional Mexican dishes, salsas, grilled items, paella, vegan food, sushi cakes, or even Indian food. Your sweet tooth may enjoy cookies, cakes, ice cream, crepes, baklava, dried fruits, marmalades, candies, and delicious hand-made chocolates. Juices, aguas, coffees, and beer are available, and there is also a full bar on premises.
Artistic attractions range from smaller tabletop items to fine jewelry to full size paintings. You can find Oaxaca pottery, Huichol stitched and beaded art, beautifully painted woodwork, hand-blown glass, pine needle art, hand-stitched textiles, products made from recycled goods, and much, much more. There are also several vendors presenting handcrafted soaps, beauty products, bath products, and natural oils, creams, and extracts.
And have they got a show lined up for you this week!! To celebrate Mexican Independence Day, Puerto Magico has arranged an awesome array of talent for your entertainment pleasure.
