  • Go to buy goodies, but come prepared to haggle and with money in pesos. Easy access, including bus.

  • If you want to find inexpensive trinkets this is the place to go but you have to be prepared to bargain. If you don't like that style of shopping then stay away.

  • I went there twice and the 1st time was in the afternoon and lots of pressure. The 2nd time was like 9 am to 10 am low all the vendor were more relaxed and a lot less pressure.
  • I enjoyed this market more than mercado 28. We were looking for alebrijes sculptures and they asked several vendors and ended up sending us to a particular shop across the street which had the particular sculptures we were looking for. Overall a more enjoyable experience than some of the other markets.
  • Really expensive souvenirs plus non existing security, YOU SHOULD AVOID IT if possible.
  • Flea market and small shops sell you items with more than quadruple of the original price. Knock down the price they gave you, don't agree on the first price offers by salesman even if it's good price.
  • They storm you. Inflated prices on some items. God deals on other items.
