#Vanguard #Art

In one of the oldest and most traditional areas of the city a special shopping center opens its doors every Sunday offering a natural way of experiencing art. No stairs, no metal doors, no credit cards, the Glorieta Chapalita outdoors art market offers the unique pleasure of art, the possibility of approaching local culture and an excellent gastronomy.

Zapopan residents live in style. For more than 30 years, more than 50 artists – painters, sculptors, photographers and decorators – have offered the best of their work in Chapalita’s outdoor market every weekend. Remarkable colors, nostalgic landscapes, wooden figurines, copper miniatures. It is the city’s main art center and everyone knows it.

Do not forget to try the local cuisine; near Chapalita, on Guadalupe Avenue and San Ignacio Street you will find an excellent place for you and your companions: New York, New York offers excellent meat cuts and big tasty portions. If you care for a more traditional taste, try Morenita del Santuario or the organic specialties of Boca Floja. After tasting their food you will not want to leave Zapopan.

We recommend:
  • Do not haggle. The prices are fair and the earnings go directly to the artist.
  • Book in advance in case you want to visit these restaurants on the weekends as they are usually very crowded
