If you plan to visit Mexico City, then you have absolutely to go to San Angel at Plaza San Jacinto and visit the Saturday Bazar.. it's so fun and full of traditions and colors. It is literarely a little tiny elegant pueblo inside an elegant colonial town. You will love it.

The market was a bit of a mess. Roads all clogged up by cars and people everywhere. Shops nearby are over priced, as with everything else sold in the market.

The atmosphere is great. The cobbled stone streets, art, beautiful church, handicraft market, nice shops make this a great place to visit on a saturday or ing. Also the streets behind the church are nice. You would be walking through an upscale part of Mexico city. It is quiet up there. If you go, try to make it at 10... More

It was definitely a charming area with art markets, local restaurants, churches, etc... but once you have seen similar cobblestone artists areas such as Montmartre in Paris or old San Juan in Purto Rico, it's hard to find San Angel as nice. The best part was having lunch at the San Angel Inn. A must. Beautiful outdoor restaurant with succulent... More

Visit this area on a Saturday and enjoy the arts market and great food on offer. Easily reached by taxi if public transport too daunting (180pesos) Though touristy,surprisingly much better prices for handicrafts than other areas of Mexico City.San Angel has a real bohemian feel and the cobblestone streets and fabulous colonial architecture transport you to another era-hard to believe...

Fabulous neighborhood with the best and most unique shops and restaurants in the city. It is beautiful, cobble stoned and historic. Most surprising, there are very few tourists here...it should be at the top of every visitor's list. I suppose that is because it is a little out of the way. It isn't easy to get there by subway, but... More

This is very old part of the city and its streets are pavemented with little stones. This is a magical place with old beautiful houses and awesome art flea market during the weekend! You should totally visit!

This means go on Saturdays. The place gets filled with artists from all types of practices. The pieces of art are amazing. Price is quite expensive but you are guaranteed original one of a kind pieces. Great to see the different types of art and tendencies of Mexico. A must visit!

Check out the markets on a Saturday, its a fun excursion. Best way to get to San Angel is to get the metro bus to La Bombilla and then walk straight up La Paz. There is some great art and crafts on sale throughout the cobblestone streets.
