This market, a 10- to 15-minute walk from the Alameda, bursts with the capital's widest range of wares and best bargains daily from about 10 to 5. We're talking about Talavera pottery, leather belts, guitars, tile-framed mirrors, hammocks, silverware, papier-mâché skeletons, rugs, trays from Olinalá, sombreros.... Prices are better than at most crafts markets (though you can still haggle), and so is the scene. On Saturday, enthusiasts gather across the street in Plaza
de la Ciudadela at around noon to dance danzón.
