It's a great market to poke around in for just about anything you would want. There's a lot of food, crafts, and souvenirs. Some excellent crafts and some cheap imports. We picked up a number of gifts without blowing the budget too. I love markets and this is one that all tourists should visit.

Best place to find all your souvenirs. SMA is a artisan lovers' town. But this market carries everything. And much cheaper than around the Jardin. It was not crowded at all when we went on a Wednesday, mid afternoon. There are also great shops lining the street.

In the back of a vegetable/fruit market. Not much to look at. Some pretty ceramic items. Old CDs. Mostly flea market stuff.

Of course like the other markets there is a lot of noise, a lot of stands sell the exact same things and the sellers are quite harrassing you to buy something... But this market is really big and you can definitly find hand-made products. In addition you can eat so many different things for almost no money. I think also... More

This market is located in a long alley type of area with lots of shops set up. The items sold range from jewelry to clothing to rugs and food, all made and sold by local folks. My wife and I visited a lovely rug store. The owners were very friendly and helpful. We selected a blue patterned wool rug, which... More

Last year I spent 3 months in SMA in Guadelupe (very close to the entrance) of the Mercardo de Artesanias and I visited often. This year, we rent a house in San Antonio and the walk to the Mercado is a little longer but nevertheless we go quite often and use the opposite entrance (through the vegetable, fruit and flower...

Somehow, the artisan's market wasn't on our list of places to visit in SMA, but we're so glad we ended up there! Having traveled extensively in Mexico, we were very pleasantly surprised at the great prices of many items made locally.

When in SMA you must stop here and shop. You'll find many interesting things from local artist and craftsman. I make a point to go every time we visit San Miguel.

We picked up a really nice rug from Oaxaca, served by the wife of the weaver. Having been in Oaxaca two years ago, I can testify that the price was not much or any more than it would have been there. We also bought some cushion covers at another stall, probably from Chiappas or Oaxaca but, again, the price was... More
