Gypsy Market Opening Day in Chelem- Chuburna

Share This

The all new Gypsy Market on the highway between Chelem and Chuburna opened for the first time on Sunday May 4th, 2014.

The tropical garden setting is the perfect venue for browsing the stalls of vendors. We enjoyed visiting with friends old and new, buying original photography prints, smoked meats, and beauty products. Under the shade trees we admired original art and local crafts.

Paws on the Beach had a great selection pet supplies and tee shirts. No Mas Perritos had a bazaar booth, with all purchases benefiting sterilization of street dogs. We sampled the soft pretzel wrapped brats, washed down with German beer.


A mix of handmade jewelry, bazaar items, new and used clothing and a large selection of english books was a shoppers delight. You can stock your pantry with homemade jams and jellies and purchase delicious homemade pastries and so much more.


We had a huge breakfast burrito stuffed with chorizo and fresh organic eggs prepared by Paul Lawrence. On this day there was even a handmade quilt raffle to benefit Amigos de Rico Foundation. It all had the feeling of a community fair.


“This will be a monthly event” said Carol Trumble as she showed me around the beautiful grounds. This is a wonderful venue, well worth our Sunday drive from Merida. Round out the day with a visit to Natural Thangs Garden Center just next door.


The Gypsy Market takes place on the first Sunday of every month from 10 am to 2 pm.


Located mid way between Chelem-Chuburna at Tienda Graciella
