Flory Saltzman Molas

Molas are possibly the most incredible example of the indigenous Panamanian artisanal tradition. Intricate reverse appliqué embroidery has been practiced by the Kuna people for hundreds of years to make the colorful, geometric patterns of animals, plants, and any other form the artist cares to imagine. At Flory Saltzman Molas, customers are treated to a remarkable array of items demonstrating this technique, with the textiles sewn into bags, shirts, coin-purses, headbands, and simply sold as patches to take on whatever purpose necessary. The encyclopedic place has options for every budget, from small designs costing pocket change to elaborate projects priced at hundreds of dollars.

Galería Art Indigena

Those tourists interested in learning about the many remarkable artistic traditions of Panama—and, of course, interested in bringing some examples back home—have few better resources at their disposal than the Galería Art Indigena in Casco Viejo. The store stocks carvings, paintings, woven baskets and bowls, figurines, masks, t-shirts, post cards, maracas, hammocks, decorated gourds, hats, animals fashioned from palm seeds, and many more treasures to be discovered along the shelves. On Friday and Saturday evenings, the Galería also hosts folkloric dancing performances from 6 until 8p.

Mercado de Artesanía

Artisans showcase their work on tables or in small shops so that visitors can stroll past woven hats, carved masks, beaded jewelry, and elaborately embroidered textiles sewn into any number of useful forms. Whether looking to carry home a suitcase full of souvenirs or to simply to look and learn about the craftwork traditions of Panama by talking to the people who make them, this Mercado de Artesanía is sure to serve as a splendid resource.

Mercado de Buhonería

A bright colony of hammocks, molas, t-shirts, sandals, maracas, masks, baskets, food stands, and plenty of other trinkets is situated behind the Old Train Station on the eastern side of Plaza Cinco de Mayo. This open-air market, known as the Mercado de Buhonería, is both less frantically busy than the area immediately around the Plaza and less touristy than other markets or stores selling artisanal crafts. Friendly vendors are happy to chat with customers about their products, their prices, and their city.
