Sayulita’s amazing food scene isn’t the only thing this vibrant little beach town has to offer. Here are the best shops and markets in Sayulita for traditional Mexican finds.

Shopping enthusiasts will be glad to hear that the shops in Sayulita are well-stocked with unique items handpicked by their shop owners, from jewelry and bohemian-chic clothing to housewares and handicrafts made by the local Huichol community. When it comes to markets, the selection is equally varied, featuring organic and sustainable products, as well as local artwork. So, leave the chain stores behind; it’s a much more authentic and enjoyable experience to browse the shops and markets in Sayulita.

1. Evoke The Spirit


The products in this shop are lovingly handcrafted over many hours, following traditional indigenous techniques. The animal skulls hanging on the wall are particularly interesting – they are made by wrapping yarn in an almost meditative state around beeswax-covered skull-shaped ceramics. The shop also sells textiles, such as knotted curtains and wall-hangings, as well as clothing and jewelry made from Huichol beads.

2. Manantial

This clothing shop across the street from pizza restaurant La Rústica features a great collection of chic, tropical clothing for both men and women. The airy fabrics and classy prints on the rompers, kimonos, jumpers and dresses will tempt you to invest in a whole new summer wardrobe. The large selection of swimwear is neatly displayed on the window and it’s bound to draw you in. Besides clothing, the store also stocks jewelry, sandals and homewares, such as coffee cups and saucers.

3. Revolución del Sueño


This boutique fits right into the Sayulita landscape. The shop imprints iconic Mexican images like Frida Kahlo, Lucha Libre wrestlers and revolutionary hero Emiliano Zapata onto cool t-shirts and traditional woven handbags that are ideal for the beach. Throws, cushions, decorative art pieces and jewelry make excellent souvenirs or gifts.

4. Buddha Gallery and Spa

As its name indicates, this is not just a shop, but also a gallery and reasonably priced spa. The selection of bohemian dresses, tunic tops and gypsy skirts is huge and of high quality, and the jewelry and home décor are displayed throughout the shop. There’s a section dedicated to children’s clothes with colorful, tropical prints such as flamingoes and palm trees.

5. Sayulita Hippie Market


Located riverside, next to the baseball stadium, the Hippie Market is open every day and features products crafted by local artisans. The stalls are stocked with unique items that make excellent gifts, such as hand-painted baseball caps, crochet dreamcatchers in every color scheme you can think of and handmade jewelry.

6. Sayulita Tianguis


On Sundays, an open-air market – known as a tianguis throughout the country – sets up its stalls along two blocks of Calle Gaviotas. You can find good deals on clothing, handmade jewelry, woven tablecloths, artwork by local artists and handicrafts from craft centers such as the villages of Tlaquepaque and Tonalá, as well as from the local Huichol community.

7. Mercado del Pueblo


Sayulita’s farmers’ market is well-known in the region for offering high-quality food including cheese, pickles and baked goods, as well as organic soaps and lotions. Its ethos is to provide local, sustainable products for people to enjoy at home. It opens every Friday from 10am to 2pm, from November to April, in line with the coast’s growing season.
