At the heart of a beautiful old neighborhood that was once reserved for Mexico City's aristocratic upper crust, lies pretty Plaza Jacinto, surrounded by shady trees, cobbled streets, and lovely old mansions. It's a fine place to explore any time, but on Saturday, the town center erupts into the Bazar del Sábado, or Saturday Bazaar.
Also known as the San Ángel Market, this is more than just another mercado - though you'll certainly find the usual assortment of fresh produce and cheap eats. But, more importantly, this is the premier arts and handicrafts market in all of Mexico. Offering artesanías from around the country, vendors are here for all your souvenir needs, from $1 hammered-tin milagros, to $2,000 original paintings and sculptures, and absolutely everything in between.
