Mexico City’s Bazaar Sabato has been humming since 1960, yes, as a weekend destination for the the tourists!  The main building – which is the official bazaar –  is a classic colonial house with a large patio in its center.  Here there sits a restaurant lively with music and a pretty good quesadilla kiosk!  Surrounding the patio, there are all sorts different handcrafts booths; with everything imagined from the gifted hands of wonderful Mexican artisans.

The entire area is a playground of artisanal design.  At the Plaza de San Jacinto, just across the street,  work is displayed on the pavement.  Around the corner, there is an open space in which tents hold smaller booths.  Nearby, not far from the Frida Kahlo house, there is a brick and mortar, high end handcraft store with creations from the more celebrated and award winning artisans in the country – here is where one can find the really spectacular!

The entire area is lovely to walk around, with cobblestone streets, colonial houses beautifully kept full of color and happiness 🙂

Glittering Glamor greets your eyes as you enter Noztalgia, a stall at the end of the second floor of the Grand Market Hall (just above the mushroom displays).

Inside you will find a vibrant selection of high quality Ajka Crystal, Hollohaza Porcelain and hand painted Kalocsa Porcelain. Out of the entire market, Noztalgia is the best value.  Beyond that, you will find special pieces, not easy to find at any price in similar stores.  A great place to get specialty-ware that you will not find at any Bed Bath & Boredom.

Wherever we travel two of the main things we always try to visit are 1) the local cultures baths and 2) the food markets.  Budapest is a haven for both!!!!!

Construction of the Great Market Hall started in 1894 according to the design of Samu Petz. In 1896 a few days before the handover fire destroyed about half of the roof.  After repairing the roof the market opened on 15th March 1897.

The spacious interior holds a festival of vivid colours; the fresh products displayed in the stalls, strings of red paprika and garlic, Hungarian salamis, meats, fresh pastries, dairy products, kitchen utensils, Hungarian wines and pálinka, honey, tea, herb mixes. The fine selection of mustards and goulash sauces packed in tooth paste tubes can make great souvenirs – and add a yummy dash of flavor to many dishes.  Another great thing to find here is saffron, and at reasonable price
