La Lagunilla Market is a traditional public market in Mexico City, located about ten blocks north of the city's main plaza, in a neighborhood called La Lagunilla. The market is one of the largest in the city and consists of three sections: one for clothing, one for furniture and one for foodstuffs, mostly selling to lower income customers. The market is surrounded by small stores and street vendors, many specializing in furniture and dresses and other needs for formal occasions. On Sundays, the number of street vendors grows significantly, a weekly “tianguis” market called a baratillo which traditionally sells used items. One section of this baratillo has developed into a market for antiques, which has attracted higher income customers and even famous ones such as Carlos Monsiváis.Our Mexico City travel itinerary planner makes visiting La Lagunilla Market and other Mexico City attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.
La Lagunilla Market Reviews
It's a nightmare to get around the area on a Sunday so make sure you get dropped off/picked up at exactly the right area. But separately I think the quality of items has gone down and the prices are..... more »
I want to buy the whole market! That's what I was thinking at the market, then you wander around to make a hard decision, buy one thing over the other. A must visit market if you souvenir shopping. more »
The best market in Mexico City if you go there on Sunday’s. You will find a huge antique section offering the most beautiful pieces of furniture, collector’s items etc. It is definitely worth a visit! (Just plan to spend some hours there)
I have never seen so many wedding dresses and suits. We went there during the week so didn't see the flee market. But there are a lot of furniture shops. Tons of very fancy dresses. A funny thing is that right next to the fancy dresses and suits they sell costumes, of all kinds and qualities
