I just loved the energy and atmosphere of the market, even in the rain. So many fun things to look at and super friendly vendors. The live music was fun. Purchased some jewelry and other curios. Really enjoyed our time!

The biggest mexican market north of the border is filled with great mexican food and shops. A very colorful place with all imaginable goods from Mexico.

There were 6 in our party - ages from 87 to 10. Everyone found something they loved in this place. Lots to see and lots of choices. Our only complaint was that there was not much seating, especially for the 87 and 67 yr olds....More

We visited on a Sunday and there was a colourful and noisy carnival going on with a great atmosphere. Walked through the shops and market that all looked as if they sold the same goods but fun place to spend an hour

"El Mercado" was a very busy area on our weekend visit. It is easy to find, but so many of the shops at this indoor market offer the same items. It was a casual pace to view and shop in air-conditioned comfort for souvenirs. Vendors...More
