  1. Visited in Jan 2018. It is open to the public and closes at 2pm. Very lovely experience. After you go left from the main entrance, parking is immediately on the left (look for the orange cones and attendant). Follow the other people walking towards El Pueblito.

  2. Hi, does this market still happen? And if not, are there any other markets where I can buy high quality local products and/or artesenal items? Thanks so much!
