Tlaquepaque

It is true that the Independencia Walkway is one of the most dynamic and artistic arteries in Tlaquepaque, but it is not the only place where you can buy handicrafts. There is also the Benito Juarez municipal market, very close to the Parian.

The first two floors are dedicated to gastronomy, the third level is the mecca of crafts from various regions of Mexico. There are talavera poblana, blown glass from Tonalá, huichol fabrics, embroidery from Tenango and saddlery. In addition to oil paintings and wood carved furniture.

Another alternative is La Casa del Artesano (The Craftsman's House) and La Plaza de las Artesanías (The Crafts Square), whose particularity is to live directly with the master craftsmen. Here you can appreciate works in wrought iron, paper maché and wood carvings. Many times, the artists allow the public to interact with the clays, paintings and other tools.

These centers are also ideal for buying typical candies, from the traditional carts filled with pinole, to the borrachitos and rompope (Mexican Eggnog) of different flavors. Of course, good tequila cannot be missed.
