The jewelry store is very nice but bargain with them cause they start out triple the price. The shops have good stuff but the people are so overly aggressive it's overwhelming and we just left.

They do not leave you a long to look at anything. They are trying (almost pulling) you to get in the store and buy something. They try very hard to sell you something, anything. We did not like it that very pushy selling idea. We couldn't stay to long.

Because I didn't and boy howdy, that was a mistake. Be firm though, otherwise you will be talked into buying something you don't want. I went with a friend who started to treat the whole thing like a sport. There's an overwhelming amount of shops and stalls to see, so try not to buy anything as soon as you get... More

Alot to see and very overwhelming. People trying to get you to shop in their stall. Very pushy, hold your ground. Didn't find it too cheap either. I found better prices by our hotel.

An interesting place to kill some time. No bargains but much to see. Several good restaurants are right in the middle.

We went to Market 28 for fun and to buy some junk for the kids. What a complete rip off. They are insanely over priced and pushy. If you want a real market experience at good prices, go to the market that is on the hotel strip, right by the Mcdonalds. I don't know its name but if you are... More

We were dropped off here per recommendation from a server at Mex Extreme but much to our disappointment! Extremely overrated and over priced! We asked a local and were guided to Mercado 23 a few blocks away. There we found the same decorative table cover for far less, $500 pesos compared to $3000 pesos at Mercado 28. We were also... More

This little market has lots of vendors. Many offer the same items. But some offer lower prices, so always ask for a price & wait until you circle the area before deciding on purchasing. You'll find a lot of souvenirs and nick knacks. There are a few good food choices, some offer authentic Mexican food. Prices are ok, but considering... More

This the place to go to if you want to buy junk souvenirs. I on the other hand, go here to buy an embroidered T-shirt. I bargained for what I wanted and got what I wanted. No more , no less. If you don't want to haggle with the merchants ,stay away
