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 charming afternoon, though it is 20+ minutes from the city center. I'd say it is well worth the visit, but if you don't have time... More

A jam packed indoor mall of smaller vendors. Some with high quality product and some with very basic junk. The vendors were some of the most intense and aggressive we have ever experienced in Mexico. Either business had been soft or this was just this particular group's style? We bought a few silver items and an Obsidian Statue and were... More

There are some nice pieces here but you have to hunt and be prepared for the hustle. I am never comfortable with high pressure sales, but it is everywhere here. Haggle and be selective.

The number of shops selling the same thing should be limited and maybe more variation of objects should be sold, as Mexico has so much to offer,

This market offers a lot of silver made work--as the name suggests. There is a wide range of items on display from mass produced pieces to beautiful one-off designs with a lot of pearl and amber work also on display. Some Mexican fire opal pieces are available too--but be aware that these are almost all synthetically produced opal. The non-silver... More

You must visit this market while in Mexio City, if you want to buy suvenirs, decor, or silver jewelry this is the place to go, It's not a huge market,if you just want to window-shop you'll be done within an hour, beutiful skulls and other typical Mexican crafts can be find here.

This is a covered market with products from all over Mexico. It's very big, it's clean and it has a good variety of things you can buy. The prices are not incredibly cheap (you can get most thing cheaper in other markets), but for the location of the market, and the fact that they're all in the same place, it's... More

This market has great merchandise! However, as a woman by myself, I did not feel safe by myself after dark, even though I speak Spanish. The prices are a little high. Try La Ciudadela instead!

This market is beautiful and easy to access. There were traditional Mexican clothing and souvenirs as well as beautiful and unique jewelry. Not much English is spoken so make sure you understand basic phrases to bargain. I found that when I walked away the vendors lowered the prices every time. There is food throughout the market as well but I... More

One of my favourite markets in Mexico City. Great location; super close to the Sheraton Maria Isabel and Angel of Independence. I like looking for traditional Mexican dresses here as well as other textiles like pillow cases. They also have a nice variety of silver and pewter vendors. The prices are good/fair compared to other vendors and markets. If you're... More
