 Once a year, the canyon spirit of Southern California comes into full bloom in the form of Mercado Sagrado. The Mercado draws together like-minded individuals, lovers of the earth, spirit questers and those seeking a way to express their joy while focusing on developing a more beautiful, insightful, and deliberate way of living.

The two day lifestyle fair takes place annually, nestled deep in the canyons of Malibu. The attendees enjoy a free spirit and fresh air in a secluded area that tourists rarely find. The event is highly curated and filled with ethical and conscientious craft, art, and design. Music is also an important part of Mercado Sagrado and people can hear a variety of tunes performed live. The event also includes its own wellness marketplace, organic food fair, and opportunities to attend lectures and hands-on classes on a variety of topics.
