Bazaar of Art and Alternative Design returns
By Jade Arroyo
Empower young talents and Mexican fashion at the next edition of the Bazaar of Alternative Design, which returns to town on March 21 and 22. Let this weekend become an opportunity to see the newest proposals and trends in fashion, jewelry, toys, shoe wear, textile art, lamps, furniture, bags, and more. We invite you to support these young, independent and brave creators by purchasing their work and allowing them to keep growing and expanding the fair trade commerce.

Over 50 independent brands from all over Mexico (DF, Guadalajara, León, Guanajuato, Michoacán, Zacatecas, Salamanca, and San Miguel) will be present, exposing and selling unique and original products entirely produced in the country under fair trade commerce philosophy.

In addition, the bazaar has a section of gourmet/organic and botanical personal care, featuring delicious gourmet chocolates and floral marmalades, organic honey by Orgánico Botánico, hand-craft mescal, and beauty products from Reijan, Basati and vegan cosmetics from Ere Pérez and La Tienda Verde.
Come spend a fun, trendy day at the bazaar while supporting the local economy and independent creativity. There will be live music, Mexican antojitos, and circus performances. Kids and pets are welcome.
We thank Mojigangas San Miguel for supporting us with their beautiful girls, designer Mariana Lescano for the poster, and our musicians.
