After a 12 year absence from San Miguel de Allende one of the places I was looking most forward to returning to was the Mercado de Artesanias. My previous experience was wonderful and allowed me to bring back many wonderful gifts to friends and family as well as the stories of the Artists themselves. As with all things given time,... More

Great shopping and awesome deals. If you are bringing children, it is hard to navigate with a stroller. So wear your infant in a carrier. Be ready to bargain!

This meandering market crosses streets and goes for blocks. Fruits, vegetables, kitchen things, shoes, flowers, ceramics, textiles, silver, the list goes on and on. In the last few years, prices have pretty much stabilized and everyone charges the same for pillow covers, silver, etc. Some stalls have a variety, some specialize. One man cooks candied pecans and sunflower seeds in... More

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
