A wonderful blend of local artists and top traditional mexican arts and crafts can be found at this market only open on Saturdays. Located in the beautiful colonial area of San Angel makes for a perfect area to explore and walk around. Put aside at least a couple of hours to explore the plazas filled with art works and the surrounding shops where you will find top mexican art.

This Saturday flea market is certainly not in the heart of Mexico City. If you are staying in the areas of Centro, Condesa or Roma Nte, then I recommend that you take an Uber to and from the market unless you want a very long but lovely stroll to the market in the morning (wear good shoes- I did not!).

The market hosts a range of typical giftware and crafts. Most of which I found in a more convenient place in Oaxaca. Therefore, if traveling to alternative Mexican states, might be more worth your time waiting for their craft markets. I brought nothing here.

We went to the Frida Kahlo Musem on the same day as El Bazar Sabado. The drive between the museum and the bazar was beautiful. We got to the bazar around 10.30 am and it was packed with vendors and tourists. There was so much beautiful artwork everywhere. The shops were diverse and wares were of high quality. We ended up staying for hours, with everyone in the house fully enjoying our wandering. The prices were great and we loved this colorful, artistic spot.

Great artisan market ranging from jewelry to textiles to ceramics and much more. Lots of very cool and delicious artisanal foods. Sampling foods was fun with no pressure to buy though I did walk away with some unique and tasty treats! There are higher quality craft items and some typical Mexican crafts too. Definitely worth a visit on a Saturday!

Many interesting crafts and clothing items at different price points. Different items from the other craft markets. Make sure to go inside where there are high end jewelry pieces and interesting food items. Well worth the trip. Open only on Saturdays

Street foods and nearby cafes.
Stalls with trinkets, jewelry and art. From semi skilled stuff to Skilled craftsmen.

Wonderful place to shop and people watch. Easy Uber or taxi on a Saturday.

I've been going there since th 80's and always loved this beautiful Mexican courtyard. The flower decorations on the fountain are gone, so is the live marimba music and the ladies who used to make the delicious quesadillas. Now the courtyard is taken up by a fancy restaurant which is a mere shadow of what used to be there.

IDK - maybe we were spoiled from the market we stumbled upon near the Frido Khalo museum. Everything here seemed overpriced in comparison. The whole scene seemed more 'touristy'... vs... IDK... local culture. I don't think we found it be all that it was cracked up to be based on other travelers' reviews.

This is a nice area to come visit even if you don't buy anything. Good selection of restaurants inside the mansion with the upscale shopping and outside as well. The more upscale items are inside a large colonial style mansion. Inside the house there is a nice restaurant with live music. Many restaurants outside also including small cafes.

You must be aware that the artisans in the mansion are artists and many of the creations are one of a kind. That is the reason for the higher prices. Outside the market you have a more affordable area with an assortment of crafts from different parts of Mexico. These include paintings, baskets, amaze paper crafts, some jewelry, some ceramics, huichol art, some textiles etc. These crafts are cheaper and less unique than what you find in the mansion. That said they are still nice and well worth checking out.

I can say that inside the mansion it is more expensive but the uniqueness and quality are higher as well. I bought jewelry from a brother and sister team. I can say that the quality of the work was definitely high compared with the more inexpensive jewelry to be found outside. The pieces were designed and crafted by this team and each piece is signed. Prices were very reasonably even for this more expensive items, perhaps due to the strong dollar. At any rate the type of work and craftsmanship is higher than for the jewelry that what I could see outside.

For a first time visitor I would recommend to see both inside the mansion and the outside stalls and surrounding area.

I need to mention that for the largest selection of crafts from "really" all over Mexico you have to go to the Ciudadela market (see my review from 2013). This is a very large market, not as quaint as the Bazar Sabado, but the selection is the best I have seen in Mexico and I have visited every Mexican state. There you have to negotiate your final price, but it is worth trying.

For a quaint upscale shopping experience I would say San Angel Saturday Bazar and Coyoacan area are probably a good choice, then for some real shopping from a very diverse and wide selection at reasonable prices the Ciudadela market near the Balderas metro stop is the place to go.

- This is a hippie market, Mexican version of Sydney's Glebe Market or London's Brick Lane market.

- Lots of arts and and handicraft items but complete rip-off. Good for tourists to browse and spend a nice day here. If you can afford a few nice things here, then go for it but i generally do not feel that anything is worth buying here.

- Lost of stalls are selling the traditional mexican Skull Head figurine, the prices are double what the stall sellers charging at La Merced.

- Only downside is the markets only open on Saturday. Even if it does open on Saturday, some stalls might not be opened until 10 or 11am. When we were there around noon time, a lot of stalls were still setting up their stalls.

- It is also a place for rich housewives to hang out. There are a lot of fancy taco restaurants and fancy cars around. Most of the ladies we walked past had highly-hairsprayed hair and smelled like they just rubbed a whole bottle of perfum on their skin.

- Also be prepared to meet lots of rich and well-dressed family on their way to the fancy restaurants or buying overpriced goods in the art shops. Watch out for the good fancy cars parked on the roads as well. Interesting to see the richer side of Mexico city.

- Prices of food are very expensive. Not sure if I would recommend any good restaurant here because we did not end up eating at any of the restaurants here.

- There is a bath house in one of the old colonial building within the market. Interesting to use their toilet and see people walking in to the bath house hiring for a bathroom to use.

- Overall it was a fun day out at the market. Bear in mind though that it is a fair bit of walk from Miguel Angel train station to the markets. Make sure you bring some water or get some water from the convenience store.
