One of the now traditional and favorite outdoor activities for tourists every year is the Organic Market in San José del Cabo. It started about 16 years ago and has been taking place in the current beautiful location for about 10 years. It is only a few blocks from downtown San José del Cabo located at La Huerta Maria. Here within DESTINO Magazine you can find it easily in the maps section on the top part of the San Jose del Cabo map. It happens every Saturday from 9 am to 3 pm from November to May and the opening date this season is Saturday November 2nd. I really recommend you visit it with your friends, family and loved ones. It is a magical atmosphere!
The Organic Market organizers have a very unique mission. They believe in creating a multi-cultural space that provides local organic produce, prepared food, arts and crafts, activities and educational resources for the community and visitors. They try to promote products and services that originate within the community and reflect the things created and produced in the region. They intend the market to be a place where community members can find local products and produce, as well as a space to meet and interact directly. They emphasize the importance of using low impact packaging for all products, and they believe in promoting the arts like dance and music as one of the creative pillars of the market space.
At the market there's something for everyone, from arts & crafts, painting tables, face painting and games such as knockerball for the kids, to massage stations, yoga, tai chi, capoeira, and salsa, and language lessons.
Spend your Saturday morning under the shade-giving trees and catch a special performance, do some hula- hooping, listen to some live music, dance to the beats of djs, join a drum circle, or sit in at poetry reading.
For shopping there's a wide variety of options, among them you can find beauty products, clothing, leather masks, art, plants, jewelry in all types and styles, bags, books, furniture, and much more!
As you can see it is an endless world of possibilities at this lovely market. Bring cash!
On a final note, one of the coolest things about the Organic Market is that it makes the local community integrate in a wonderful and positive way within itself as mentioned above, as well as helping make a magical connection and interaction between the locals and our dear visiting tourists like yourself.
I hope you make it to the Organic Market for an enchanting experience!
