On Saturdays, as the name implies, one of the most delightful things you can do is head over to the sleepy, cobble-stoned streets of San Angel to shop in this grand old colonial plaza. It’s jam-packed with artists and artisans who sell their wares here week after week, including paper flowers, embroidered blouses, tin toys, carved Pepita glass, etc. Some of it is on the folksy side, but there’s always at least one discovery to walk away with. Plus, there’s a restaurant inside serving solid quesadillas (though there’s also a street stand right outside that out-does these), and right across the street is the weekly artist’s street market, where there are some good finds to be made.
