Shopping in Oaxaca City



Oaxaca is a magical land, churches, pyramids, art, food, they all come together to create one unique city. But, let's be honest, we love to shop while on vacations. Luckly, Oaxaca is an ideal place for that. This is the best place in Mexico to buy contemporary art. Somehow, in Oaxaca, a grand and important group of artists has developed, making this city the heart and soul of contemporary art in Mexico. But the arts and crafts made by indigenous people from all over the state are also some of the best in the country. Oaxaca is famous for the alebrijes, sarapes, barro negro and more. The first place in this Top Ten list is the Galeria Arte de Oaxaca, the place that made famous the Oaxaqueño art. The best known artists in Mexican Contemporary Art world have works for sale in here. The Galeria Quetzally is another important gallery and probably the ideal place to buy a piece of contemporary art from Mexico. If what you want are crafts, La Mano Magica and MARO are two galleries-like places to buy the best crafts around, and also to find crafts from other places of the state. But don't forget that sometimes the market is the best places to find whatever it is you are looking for. They have anything you want, and it's alway fun to visit a market.
