The weaver was our favorite where the hand-loom is large enough to create king-sized bedspreads. Many beautiful items can be purchased here.

Located near the Plaza Grande, Once Patios is an open air maze of interesting shops built around courtyards and on multi levels. In many you will see artisans at work. It's a delightful way to procure nice gifts/souvenirs and work up a margarita thirst in the process!

This used to feel like a series of artisans. Now, many of them sell mass produced junk which is a real shame. It's easy to move around, and the layout is okay once you get used to it.

A couple of the best ones are on the second floor - easy to miss. Good handicrafts, clothing and gifts.

There are multiple shops providing a variety of regional craft to suit diverse tastes. You must visit La Troje, which is a true replica of the traditional Purepecha homes. This shop offers colorful tablecloths and napkins made from cotton or acrylic cloth.

This ex-convent has been turned into a mini shopping area where most rooms have been turned into shops. You can find many types of handcrafts and jewelry and the architecture is very interesting.

Just make sure when you go is outside the lunch break since most shops will be closed, it's about half a block from the main plaza.
