Coyoacán Bazaar Toy Cemetery

Known officially as the Mercado Artesanal Mexicano (Mexican Crafts Market), but colloquially as El Bazar, this market is a reference point in Coyoacán’s center. But hidden beneath the small cacti and leafy plants on its entrance, you can find something of a time capsule.

Over the years, toys have been left here to give them something of a final resting place. It’s likely the practice was started by the Bazaar’s merchants themselves, as some of the stands sell retro and vintage toys much like the ones found in the “cemetery.”
