Fresh food, live music, art, hand-made gifts, and more. You'll find a bit of everything here at the seasonal, outdoor Mermaid Market!
The Mermaid Market in Puerto Peñasco was started 10 years ago by Russ and Naomi Black. Their mission was to create a way for local artists and photographers to sell their products. As well as bring the community together! Today, the market has grown to host 25-30+ vendors every Saturday! The event is held the 1st and 3rd Saturday from October to the end of May. Though, some Saturdays they may not hold a market due to weather or other circumstances. The best way to stay up to date is by following their official Facebook page or checking out their website.
The market takes place in Shrimp Park which is on the corner of Benito Juarez and Blvd. Freemont from 10:00 am to 3:00 pm. There is no admission charge to get into the Mermaid Market and parking is free. So, this is a fantastic place to hang out, shop around, enjoy music, try local food vendors, and spend time with the family at no cost!
