Handicraft Market

Mercado Artesanal

If you are looking for something made of earthenware, this market, located a few blocks from Juárez Square, is the best place to shop. Here you will find unfinished, painted, and glazed earthenware in the shape of flowerpots, vases, and cooking pots. Some of their most sought-after pieces are skeletal catrina figures, suns and moons, mermaids, and the traditional Trees of Life. The workmanship of these sculptures—typical of Metepec—is admired worldwide.
