Lots of places to shop

Glad I went. Blocks and blocks of stands to look at. Wear comfortable shoes, bring an umbrella if you need shade and your patience. So much, I was overwhelmed.

Great shopping and prices
Jan 2021 • Friends
Having visited Tequila and Tlaquepaque, I thought their prices were very favorable to more touristy parts of Mexico. Then a visit to the Tonala market showed they could go lower. So many stores for crafts, furniture, decorations, metals, etc. Prices much lower than Tlaquepaque. But wait! Across the street (Tonaltecas) is the open-air market with even lower prices on many of the things you’re looking for.

Is this amazing market scheduled to reopen in June?

We have a trip planned at the end of June and are wondering if the markets or restaurants (to go maybe?), will be open in Guadalajara and Tonala.

A little disappointed
Feb 2020 • Couples
Having been told this market was full of handmade crafts, I had high expectations for high quality items. I was not prepared for the many (most) booths of mass produced things that can be found, in smaller numbers, in most any Mexican market. I wasn't really looking for brightly painted plaster pigs, or factory made cups. Not to say there were no high quality items. There a few booths that contained hand made items, some nice furniture, one booth of blown glass, and a few with hand painted items. Across the street there was a street market that went for many blocks where I found much more interesting things.

Go on Sunday

It will blow your mind! If you love to shop you'll be in heaven. It's shopping on steroids. I don't particularly like shopping, but I was entertained by all the stuff. Lot of stuff!! My friend and I went in July so it was pretty hot, but there are plenty of cafes and restaurants to stop off at. I got the impression most of the items were not high quality, but I can't say for sure. If you want high, high quality go to Tlaquepaque instead.

We were hoping to see lots of pottery on a non market day but little to see except one really good shop where Obama bought pieces.

This is the place to go if you want artisan products - at the best prices
Jan 2020
We went here and were amazed that all the things (and more) that we could get from the San Juan Mercado in the centre of Guadalajara were there at better prices. This is the place to go if you want artisan products

Good place to shop if you are looking to decorate your home and live in the area. Great for browsing row-upon-row of relatively lower priced knick-knacks.
However, would recommend skipping if you are not into "window" shopping.
