The thing to remember at this market is that inside the bazaar building are the permanent stores with the higher quality purchases and outside are the bargains – after that go with what you like from a good selection of art, pottery and crafts, blown glass, figurines and embroidered clothing.  Mostly this is just a really nice place to hang out and watch Mexico thrive colourfully.

The restaurants and cafes here are some of Mexico City's best, especially the ones lining the Plaza San Jacinto – though they'll be busy on Saturday.  One of the most famous is the San Angel Inn, which is near the Diego Riviera Studio and Museum.  You can also get excellent food from the market if you're not too fussed about sitting down, though there is an excellent Mexican cafe in the center of the two storey bazaar building that's known for Margaritas and traditional finger foods.  

The market runs from between about 9 until about 6.
