  • Nice ambience but I think that people doesn't take you seriously and they just want to sell their stuff. They often put music that is not appropriate for the place.  more »

  • The best place to buy crafts from Puebla like the iconic 'talavera'. There is a big variety of styles and prices. Some shops accept major credit cards.
  • Fun to walk around but a lot of what they sell is all the same in each booth!
  • Parian Market is a historical place to see and its a good spot to take some beautiful pictures but if you plan to buy crafts from here, you better know that price are 3 or 4x higher in compare to Mexico City's Craft Markets
  • Great, cheap place to buy artisanias mexicanas!
  • Lots of beautiful pottery, jewelry and souveneirs. You can find authentic talavera here.
