This is a great place to visit on Saturday - Art set up in the plaza and street vendors all around mostly selling arts and crafts. Definitely worth a few hours.

Plaza de San Jacinto is a colonial area in San Angel, in the Southern part of Mexico City. It's very beatif7on any day, but it is especially so on a Saturday when the Bazaar Sabado takes place.

We had been looking for an area like this since we first arrived in Mexico City. Between the galleries and shops in the area, we finally found the high quality arts & crafts that we search out during our visits to Mexico. Our only regret is not having scheduled a Saturday there so we could go to the Bazar Sabado!

This was recommended to us by a local; mostly for shopping, but also as a great neighborhood with lots of restaurants. We opted to take the metro bus here from the Zona Rosa on a Saturday morning. It took about an hour, including a minute walk on the other end to get here. The plaza is beautiful, with artisan goods... More

One of the loveliest spots in Mexico City. You can eat, shop, admire art and spend your day like a local on a high or low budget. The best day is satuday when there is a special saturday only bazaar that is not to be missed.

We trekked out to San Angel and had a great time walking through the stalls of local artisans. So much great artwork, craftwork and energy - definitely deserves to be on an itinerary when visiting DF

Excellent Plaza with an interesting art market on the weekends! There are some very good tamales over by the Public Baths on one side of the plaza. There is a more upscale market and shopping center off the right ... a good place in the heart of San Ángel to check out if visiting the South of Mexico City. I... More

Neighborhood Profile
San Angel
San Ángel is known for its artistic vibe and elegant details displayed throughout its streets, antique residences and haciendas where famous actors like Consuelo Velázquez, Capulina and other prominent families used to live and that have now been turned into beautiful galleries, cafés and restaurants. An array of cultural and artistic activities are organized in the neighborhood, but it is on Saturdays when the San Jacinto Plaza and surroundings really shine as artists gather to exhibit a variety of arts and crafts, from paintings to clothing.
