San Angel Saturday Art Market

This weekend Greg and I visited San Angel to learn more about this neighborhood and more specifically to learn more about the art market that fills the parks on Saturdays.

We arrived around 10am and both parks were packed with artists setting up their creations! From abstract creations to textured oil paintings to sculptures, the diversity of the art in the parks on Saturdays in San Angel is incredible. We had the opportunity to interview some of the artists and a few of them have been coming to share and sell their art for more than 25 years! We ran into Ricardo, one of our amigos that watches our videos. I instantly felt as if I had just shaken the hand of a famous person! His art is incredible. And he did the coolest thing we could ever imagine–he GAVE us a piece of his art! Neither Greg or I are very artistically inclined and this is our first piece of art to own and wow is it a special one! Here is a pic of Ricardo, an incredible artist and SUCH a nice guy:

There was a huge mariachi band playing celebratory tunes for a couple that got engaged there in the park. There were ice cream vendors, churro vendors, and everything in between. The park was packed by 12:30pm with people wandering around to enjoy the art. In my opinion, this is the best place to see art in the city. Bonus: it is free and you can actually meet the incredibly talented artists!!

We also took the opportunity to wander off the beaten path in San Angel to see what the neighborhood is all about. And WOW-some of San Angel is insanely fancy! There are beautiful mansions behind closed gates with beautiful flowers and huge wooden doors. The streets are quiet and colorful.
