Let's face it: San Miguel is a tourist town, with so many expats who may or may not ever have visited a Mexican market, that this is still worth a visit. Recognize that this is not an open air market, so you lose authenticity right there. The town has installed the artist market (with a few food stands and places... More

We liked to taste the typical candies of the region... we loved to see the different artesenias of the region... but found again realatively more expesensive prices than other region of MExico... maybe because it is more touristic?

The market is quite cozy and while the vast majority of "artifacts" sold are mass-produced and found all over Mexico you might find a handful of fine things. If you're not traveling all over the country and just want some presents you might as well get them here, they are not better or worse in quality or prices than anywhere... More

Yes, many of the people are just selling things that are sold all over, but at lower prices. But if you look hard enough, you'll actually run into unique art and maybe even the artists themselves. It's a big place, and you feel like you're actually in a Mexican artisan market.

Best thing we did - vast and if you get away without buying something then you won't have appreciated the experience. They have EVERYTHING. Do bargain.

This place is full of mass produced "Mexican" products. Nobody in this place in an Artisan! If you want to get a bunch of cheap goodies to take home as presents then this is the place. They are selling a lot of the same stuff that is really marked up in stores around the Zocalo. However, if you want better... More

Go around San Miguel and window shop. Note what you like and how much they cost. Then, go to the Mercado de Artesanias and buy them there. This beautiful table runner I saw in some store was selling for 1,050 pesos and the woman wouldn't give me a discount. I didn't buy it which was good because I saw it... More

We were on the search for traditional crafts throughout our visit and this market was where we made most of our purchases. We found some great cowboy boots with armadillo for $50US, leather sandels, beaded Huichol bowls, leather belts, and wool ponchos. Also available in the market - traditional pottery, metal work and the usual array of small souveniers. It... More

The food was delicious and very reasonably priced. The architecture was amazing. The locals were very friendly. Arts and crafts were everywhere. It was an amazing trip for my husband and me.
