“Great little market to get souvenirs and traditional Poblano items”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2012

Great open air market that has lots of little shops that sell different types of souvenirs, textiles and traditional candies. Great for getting any gifts for family and friends. Prices are very reasonable and most shopkeepers very friendly.

“good prices!!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2012

many stores to choose from!! you don't know what to buy, key chains, mugs, plates, dresses, t shirts and much more, just be careful to check 1 or 2 places before to buy something to compare prices

“The best place to purchase souvenirs”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2012

I visit this mercado three times when I was in Puebla and I find that this place has more diverse souvenirs than others. Always bargain and do not settle on the first offer. It's also good idea to go around and ask for prices b/c several stores carry similar items but at dfferent prices.

“A good craft market”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 25, 2012

Much less pushy, in hindsight, than many other markets or tourist locations we saw. So it was possible to have a good look. Local textiles and Talavera pottery are the specialties. Very colourful.
