San Jacinto and its surrounding area is a fantastic, colourful place to walk around and, why not, also an opportunity to buy some presents to take home. You can find an unimaginable amount of arts and crafts. And different prices for all the budgets. Only open as its name indicates, on Saturdays.

We decided to visit on Saturday to get the full experience. We did take the metro from city center where you do have to change lines once. Each metro ticket was only $5.00 MX , it does get busy later in the day so use early. Then we walked up Avenida de La Paz. I'm glad we walked as we... More

Shopping area in San Angel neighborhood with variety of indoor and outdoor art & craft stalls, upscale boutiques, and restaurants. Caters mostly to tourists and wealthier locals. Equally fun for the shopping as it is for the people watching.

There are several parts to this market. Artists around the park, Fancy pants new building, old building with 2 floors of bric-a-brac, temporary stalls, and regular shops. It is in an upscale neighbourhood, and the fun parts are only open on Saturday. The prices are reasonable, but I especially like it because it is relaxed, and feels safe. The vendors... More

On Saturday there are many painters, sculptors and artisans selling their wares. The area is nice and worth a visit if you are combining your trip with another nearby attraction such as the University or the Kahlo Museum. With Mexico City's poor traffic the Bazar by itself it is not worth the long drive from the historic center.

While an El Bazar Sabado building does exist, we felt that this was more of a neighborhood event since there are numerous galleries and shops in the surrounding area and then the Plaza fills up with "starving artists" and other assorted vendors. From our observations of the crowd, the event seems to be one for locals to be seen and... More

Perhaps, if we arrived sooner there would not have been so many people. I am 72 and somewhat claustrophobic and it was difficult to see just what the shops offered. There were many interesting items. Unfortunately, after about an hour, I was ready to go. I would like to return if I visit Mexico City again. Earlier in the day... More

Lots of shops & great tacos inside the main plaza. The Saturday bizarre was filled with art, music and a great artist booths! Nice way to spend a Saturday in Mexico City. We went early before it got to crowded. Great place to pick up treasures from your travels in Mexico.

Spend an easy morning strolling around the colourful market and pick up a few souvenirs. Plenty of good cafes around when your legs need a rest

Neighbourhood Profile
San Angel
San Ángel is known for its artistic vibe and elegant details displayed throughout its streets, antique residences and haciendas where famous actors like Consuelo Velázquez, Capulina and other prominent families used to live and that have now been turned into beautiful galleries, cafés and restaurants. An array of cultural and artistic activities are organized in the neighborhood, but it is on Saturdays when the San Jacinto Plaza and surroundings really shine as artists gather to exhibit a variety of arts and crafts, from paintings to clothing.
