The quality and quantity of vendors is excellent. Organic food, glass blower, crafts and clothes and lots of great food. Music makes this a must experience again and again.

The La Cruz Sunday market is way more than a fish market. Living in Sayulita we have visited many local markets and give the La Cruz market high marks on the number and quality of the folk art and crafts found here. The booths surround...More

Not a large market. You will have to shop in Bucerias. There are 2 large markets there.
