Polanco Shopping tops the list of trendy Mexico City shopping districts. An uber-fashionable neighborhood, Polanco is touted for its designer brand name boutiques, fine Cuban cigar merchants and top of the line jewelers and leather goods.
La Zona Rosa Shopping - means 'pink zone' in English and was named for the pink tiles that line the La Zona Rosa's streets. Zona Rosa is the mercantile hub of Mexico City. It's jam-packed with Mexico shopping delights - boutique shops and the finest restaurants and museums. But the glitz and glamour of La Zona Rosa doesn't come cheap.
The Mercado la Ciudadela Shopping – is a maze of shops and open walkways surrounding an open courtyard in Centro Histrio. Mercado's merchants mainly sell handmade crafts or artwork. They won't hassle you, but they will demand a fair bargain for their handiwork. This tourist favorite is in business daily from 10:30 am to 6:30 pm.
Lagunilla Shopping – Comically referred to as the thieves market, because it's said that you can buy back what was stolen from you the night before. But seriously, pickpockets are a problem here so watch your purse. Shop here any day of the week for antiques, jewelry, used books and trinkets.
Bazar Sabado Shopping – is an indoor market housed inside one of San Angel's colonial mansions. Live music will accompany your Saturday hunt for crafts and art. A buffet lunch is made available in the market's outdoor courtyard.
