A Day in Mexico City: Bazar la Ciruela + Tráfico Bazar

Yesterday, I was in my absolute element while surrounding myself with creative geniuses at Bazar la Ciruela and Tráfico Bazar, both next door to each other in Mexico City’s hip town of Roma.  It was a funky market full of young, Mexican artists selling handmade clothes, jewellery, designs, food, mezcal, you name it. All with a beautiful bohemian trend to it. Heaven!

Thanks to discovering the awesome Los Loosers this week, the only vegan delivery service in all of Mexico City, I was one happy little healthy-eating-Aussie in Mexico. In perfect timing with my visit, the folks at Los Loosers posted on Facebook about taking a break from delivery (much to my distraught) in preparation for this weekend’s Bazar la Ciruela (much to my excitement!).

If you’re ever in Mexico City, I highly recommend using Los Loosers’ service. Their food is absolutely delicious, and most-importantly it’s fresh, affordable, and handmade with lotsa Vitamin L (love).

Los Loosers Vegan Lunch Mexico City

My Los Loosers lunch this week – chilaquiles w/ kidney beans, garlic & organic kale. YUM!

I adored meeting so many incredible people.

My of my highlights was meeting Summer Romero, a super-friendly fashion designer, who takes the love of her work to a whole new level. She creates one-of-a-kind pieces out of natural, organic and recycled materials. She then works with indigenous embroiders to add the finishing touches, after they all meditate together over the clothes, sending love-filled energy into each piece, which is then passed on to you as you wear it. Love it.

 I seek for consciousness awakening and expansion, not only mine but also of the ones with whom I share my creation on their body, their temple. As an artist and human being my fascination is not only the human body but to stimulate what cant be touched or seen but also you can feel and it transforms you. – Summer Romero

My next highlight was this ever-so-hipster dude, Julio Abraham Jimenez Suarez of AB Design, who hand-crafts rings and sunglasses out of old skateboards. I picked up a pair of his awesome sunnies. Check out the case they come with!

My next purchase was from Don’t Trash It. This girl makes some incredible jewellery out of wood. Her idea is to stop jeopardizing the environment by creating products of quality, natural materials that are reusable and recyclable. I picked up an awesome necklace, shown in the picture below.

My friend, Maga, picked up a couple of pieces of jewellery, including this little feather from AVEC, and Angel nabbed some funky t-shirts from Tianguis Vinttage.

Just as it ticked over midday, we finished off our spending-spree at the Mezcal Unión stand for a glass of mezcal with jamaica (a traditional fruity tea-like drink made out of jamaica flowers) – you can’t get much more Mexican than that. I always had considered mezcal to taste like tequila, putting it in my “I don’t like it” basket, until now. Our drinks went down pretty easily… Even if it did still feel like morning!

This is just a small few of the incredible stalls they had. If you are in Mexico City, or visiting soon, then make sure you like Bazar la Ciruela on Facebook to stay notified on their next event.
