This used to feel like a series of artisans. Now, many of them sell mass produced junk which is a real shame. It's easy to move around, and the layout is okay once you get used to it.

There are multiple shops providing a variety of regional craft to suit diverse tastes. You must visit La Troje, which is a true replica of the traditional Purepecha homes. This shop offers colorful tablecloths and napkins made from cotton or acrylic cloth.

I believe it is open every day although the specific merchants may have different hours. I would not go on Sundays as that tends to be a family day.
