Rapsodia Bazar: Showcasing Cancun’s Designers and Artists

I cannot stress enough just how happy I am that Cancun is starting to create its very own art culture.

This weekend was yet another example thanks to Rapsodia Bazar. This little market has popped up 3 times now, showcasing local Cancun artists, designers and small business owners in a 1-day event.

Saturday was my second time at Rapsodia Bazar (more on my 1st visit here), and this time they hosted the event at the large park in the Supermanzana 20 neighborhood of downtown Cancun. I didn’t make it there until 7pm and it was already dark. I also hear they had a lot more stuff earlier in the day, which surprised me because there was still quite a lot left!

Here’s a taste of what I found:

Overall I loved the location in the park, and I found tons of stuff I considered buying. My only complaint would be that some of the items didn’t seem very unique. I saw very similar items at different tables, especially some of the jewelry.

I only bought 1 thing this time: yet another piece of art by Michelle Bordon! (See Michelle’s Facebook page here.)I bought a toucan drawing from her at the last Rapsodia Bazar, and this time I bought a very large hermit crab. Normally I’m not much of an art freak, but I can’t get enough of these. They’re done with pen! This guy is gonna go in my office:

Thank you Rapsodia Bazar for contributing to Cancun’s cultural scene! You can follow Rapsodia Bazar on Facebook here.

  1. Lau,
    Thank you so much for your support <3 and for keeping us informed about all this events!
    You really do a great job and let me tell you that the way you appreciate and admire our culture, its really beautiful!


  2. That’s the one thing I didn’t like about the markets and bazars in D.F. – A lot of the stuff wasn’t unique at all.

    This looks pretty amazing though. I still love a good wander around one. 😀

  3. Hi, I just stumbled upon your page while searching for a place to go for a vacation/buying/looking trip! I own a small boutique in Kootenays, B.C, Canada.
    Do you have any sugestions of a good place to go that has lots of unique items and garments??

    Thank you
