Artesans Market

The Artesans Market (Mercado de Artesanias de la Ciudadela) is the best place in the city to find art and craft pieces from around the country. It is not the cheapest place in Mexico, but it is reasonable, and has items from the different regions, so if Mexico City is your last or only stop in Mexico, buy up! However, if you’re just starting your Mexican Adventure, you can buy it cheaper, and later (limiting carrying time) south in Oaxaca ore central in San Cristobal.

Either way, even if you don’t plan to buy anything, you should at least walk around this market, the colour and design of the items are amazing. By the time you leave this market you will have either bought something, or wish you had!

Between Balderas & Juarez Metro stations, also walkable from Zocolo / Centro Historico Area. From Balderas, walk along Balderas Ave, through the street stalls, and enter the main market area.
