Mercado Artesanal de Coyoacán
Located in Mexico City’s most charming colonial neighborhood, El Mercado Artesanal de Coyoacán boasts a huge variety of handcrafted textiles, artwork and quirky souvenirs. Famed throughout the country, the market is a great place to shop for souvenirs at prices lower than those found in the shops of central Mexico City. Keep an eye out for traditional indigenous items such as rebozos (shawls) and huipiles (tunics). The intricate, colourful designs are often loaded with symbolism and provide a vital link to the past.
