All kinds of stuff for sale, from jewelry (silver) to masks and bags, shirts. You name it, it’s here. The price listed is always a starting point and we got some great deals.

I found this a better place to buy silver than in Taxco... lots of stores selling silver jewelry and objects, so great selection and easy to negotiate for a fair price. Shopkeepers were clear about what was sterling silver and what wasn't. Also, other souvenirs...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...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.

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...More

Once you step into Coyoacán (“Land of the Coyotes”)
you'll find picturesque parks and cantinas that will
transport you back to the colonial era thanks to the
brick and stone details of the area. Iconic writers
such as Trotsky and great painters like Frida Kahlo
seeked refuge and inspiration in this area, and you
can see the unique spirit of this neighborhood
reflected in its colorful market where nieves, sopes
