  • It is a crafts market where there are many jobs, although at the time we visited it was in the works, since they were remodeling the interior. Prices are variable but did not seem to us to be expensive, are affordable, depending on what you want to buy. It lies in the pink area of the city of Mexico.

  • This artisan market is tiny and kind of intense with shopkeepers trying to beckon you into their stalls. The artisan market in Coyoacan is faaaaar better, and two stories! Plus, it makes for a very ch...  more »

  • Excellent crafts for sale here. The vendors are a bit pushy, so it might be good to browse quickly, deliberate, and come back to haggle.
  • Closest to Polanco for souvenirs, it has a good selection of silver items, trinkets, Mexican weavings and hats, and other knick knacks to take home as gifts. Be sure to bargain! There are shops within 2 blocks that offer etching at 2 pesos per letter, for silver items.
  • Very cramped, don't feel comfortable walking thru it
  • Cool market with lots of souvenirs to purchase. Food for purchase is also available. Vendors are willing to negotiate. Don't pay asking price.
  • A delightful mercado with lots of silver stores and the usual folk art and crafts from all over Mexico. A little smaller, more compact. Maybe it is because I speak a little Spanish. Maybe it is because I was having fun wearing my Lucha Libre mask through the market. But the shop keepers were so friendly and social. This is a hard life. Too many shops with the same things to sell. Limited tourism. Limited number of people who are actually shopping for these kinds of handicrafts. One of the high points for me was discovering the wonderful fondas to dine for lunch. Comida corridas in the price range of $4 to $5 including soup, salad, sopa seca, entree, all you can eat tortilas, beverage and dessert. Clean, friendly. Just delightful.
