Last Sunday I went to Lagunilla market near placa garibaldi in Mexico City. I was searching for genuine mexican fire opals. And yes like 15 years ago, when I was the first time on this market, there are still some semi pressure stone dealers on the market. The few dealers are spread over the market. I found last Sunday 5.... More

Young people drinking HUGE big-gulp sized beers. Planchas full of meat on the grill. Juice stands. Clothing. Antiques. Housewares. Makeup. Toys. Jewlery. Stickers. What don't they have here?! It's just A LOT. Tons of people, tons of sounds and smells, some good deals to be had, and a great way to spend a Sunday afternoon and take in a bit... More

Many reviews mention this place only sells cheap clothes and housewares -- not true! On Sundays only there are a huge number of antique vendors selling fascinating things for a song. Just ask someone to point you in the right direction, as it can be almost impossible to find on your own. It's true that this market isn't for the... More

This place is huge, full of people, sights and sounds. There are a lot of reviews stating that the place wasn't safe and that maybe true, we didn't have that experience thank god.

I recently returned to La Lagunilla Flea / Antique market after more than a decade and I'm happy to say it was just as fascinating. There's a very open, safe, neighbourhood feeling to the scene. I found wonderful things at very good prices. I bought furniture and the seller was most co-operative in delivering it to my friend's home in... More

A mandatory visit on Sundays. Walk around...,engage in conversations with the vendors..., eat as the locals do..., tough and feel the history behind each of artifacts available for sale. A great bargain hunting spot for those who know what they are looking for.

From Ancient artifacts to fine Antiques not to be missed. Safer then Detroit Michigan. Great street food recommend by Friend from IACP. You love it if you like Antiques and the unusual objects. Great Sunday strolling.

Worth the risk for the best street tacos evuh! It really wasn't all that bad as the other reviews stated. Be mindful of your surroundings and go during the day. Tons of random clothes and furniture shops.

I saw many reviews warning about the dangers but we never felt unsafe or intimidated. If you want to see dresses to rival My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding, this is the place to go. Lots of clothing, home articles and wooden furniture but if you are looking for Mexican souvenirs you should be heading to La Ciudadela, Insurgentes (aka Mercado... More
