Our favorite place for brunch at the Bazar Sábado is directly across the street from the scene in the first photo. This is the Fonda San Ángel, where the every-Saturday brunch will give you the fuel you need for shopping. You will love it! Photo courtesy Fonda San Ángel.
These hand-embroidered table runners are made in the state of Guerrero. We also saw full-size table cloths, napkins, and place mats. We bought a dozen or two fabric coasters hand-embroidered with birds, fish, and flowers.
Crowds at Bazar Sábado tend to be large and shoppers are fairly aggressive. Lots of tourists go: you'll hear Japanese, French, English, German, and a slew of other languages on the pathways of Plaza San Jacinto. Be prepared to spend a little more money than you might in some other markets, but the atmosphere and the enormous selection of goods will give you great stories to tell back home. Bazar Sábado is worth it!
