The Mercado is a great place to find everything from clothing, jewelry, souvenirs, and home decor. All merchants will negotiate prices - some reducing the price by up to 25%. Merchants are extremely friendly and speak English. U.S. dollar is accepted at a reasonable conversion rate.

A great mix of the local trinkets and folk art. Plan your day and give yourself time, there is a lot to see. You need to really look and take the time if you want to find the unusual.

If you're going to buy any silver or gifts, this is the place to get the best deals than other stores around the center of town. So, it's worth visiting. :)

It's a picturesque few blocks of stalls, but you won't find much more treasure than you can in Laredo or Tijuana.

A mixture of cheap and nasty souvenirs and really nice hand crafts. The longer halls which run between Calles Loretto and Colegio are where you will find all the nick-nacks and hand-crafts. At the eastern end you can find the clothes, food and produce sections. Put aside a good 2 hours in your day to fully explore the market. Best... More

We spent two weeks in SMA and frequented the Mercado de Artesanias many times. We shopped there, as most do, and brought home many beautiful linens, dishes, clothing and art, but what we really really REALLY loved was eating there! We had a couple of really wonderful late breakfasts from the food stalls, and some really tasty lunches as well,... More

This mercado has artisans from around the area and country. It is clean and well organized. The selection is amazing and the quality of wares above average. It is just a few blocks from the center of town.

San Miguel is such a tiny town there is no doubt you will wander into this craft market sometime during your stay. it's really fun to walk through a skinny alley of colorful booths and a great place for local handicrafts and souvenirs. it is especially great during the weekends when out of town crafters sell their arts inside the...

We walked through this market fairly early in the morning so that not quite all of the stalls were open. But the ones that were held an assortment of goodies. We really enjoyed wandering through and spent a good deal of time trying not to buy more stuff to take home!
