Mexico's distinct geographical regions are each known for specific types of crafts. In the state of Oaxaca, for example, there's black, glazed pottery, and in Chiapas, there are textile-based crafts. You can find both of them—and many other kinds of Mexican handcrafts—here. La Ciudadela is a large (but thankfully not overwhelming) market of artisanal goods in the Centro Histórico neighborhood. Whether you're looking for the talavera-style white-glazed, hand-painted plates and bowls from the state of Puebla or blown glass, woven rugs, or hand-crafted toys, vendors will be happy to sell to you. Bargaining is acceptable here, so don't be afraid to negotiate.
