For a great selection of Mexican crafts, visit the Ciudadela, four blocks south of the Alameda Park on Balderas Avenue just south of Paseo de la Reforma. It's a semi-covered market that covers 16,000 square meters with more than 200 stalls. It's...more

Large market with many stalls specializing in various things: folk art souvenirs, jewelry, housewares, fabric craft. You can find tiny folk art turtles for a US quarter (gifts for classmates!), to beautiful large ceramic bows for US$12 to embroidered pillow covers for US$10-15.
This is the only market I went to in mexico city that is worth the visit ( for artesan stuff).
There are lots of stalls and good prices.
You mostly have to actively speak to the sellers, they seldom come to you but at least...More
I did go to the market and ended up buying most of the souvenirs here but I found much better prices and vendors willing to make a sale at the Pyramids.
Will recommend first buying at the pyramids and then visiting here if your schedule...More
We came here to get some souvenirs for us and our family/friends. It was definitely a one-stop shop! Some of the stuff you can tell is mass-manufactured, but other things you can actually see the vendors crafting. There were some incredibly unique finds - like...More

All the arts and crafts you could want from all over Mexico. Make sure to walk though the whole maze of the market and check prices for the things you want - the exact same thing could be half the price in a different store....More
This beautiful park was once the playground for the wealthiest families in the colonial era, and is now the perfect place where locals and visitors can spend a sunny weekend afternoon to relax or shop for souvenirs at the market. Kids can run around or grab a bite of cotton candy while teens and adults wander around admiring the charming gardens and the sculptures that adorn it. Once the heat rises, it may
be time to visit one of the many cozy restaurants or cafés with its characteristic art nouveau facades to cool down and call it a day.
