Besides providing a reason to go to the elegant cobblestoned San Angel neighborhood, the Saturday market in San Angel offers high quality handicrafts that make excellent gifts or souvenirs. If all that shopping makes you hungry, you can grab a bite to eat in the central courtyard or at one of the nearby restaurants.
The Bazaar Sabado, Plaza San Jacinto, San Angel.
A giant market, crawling with prostitutes. The main reason to visit is a giant witchcraft market virtually tourist free, where you can buy candles, handicrafts, a love potion or spell for anything, and just soak in the atmosphere.
In the neigbouring block is a giant exotic animal market, again interesting but very sad considering the conditions some animals are kept in. Remember this is not the best part of town and the witchcraft market is not geared towards tourists but to people with deeply held beliefs so be careful not to offend.
Take the metro to La Merced (pink line). You will exit into the main food market. Ask directions to El Mercado de la Brujeria (Witchcraft Market)
An open air art market selling ceramics, craftwork, art, sculptures etc. You can have the best food in the city for next to nothing in the second section of the market, just pull up a stool on the long communal tables.
Where Avenue Reforma and Avenue Insurgentes meet take a micro bus on Reforma or the new metro bus on Insurgentes
