Shopping in Mexico City

The Centro Histórico offers everything from antique jewellery in the National Pawn Shop to sweets in Dulcería de Celaya, while bargain hunters flock to historic flea market La Lagunilla Market. Pick up typical Mexican souvenirs in Almeda and contemporary art in the Zona Rosa. High-end fashion and malls are found in upscale Polanco while Condesa's relaxed vibe makes it a popular choice for art galleries. Save the markets for Sundays when many shops are closed.
