I ended up here having been staying in El Paso. We walked over the Mexican/US border, really straightforward (with a British passport). The whole town was buzzing with life and interesting sites. The market stocked your expected touristy bits and bobs but was a fun experience and the traders were pretty laid back giving space to take things in your... More

walked across bridge from El Paso ---- took taxi to market----- taxi had wire up through floorboards for brake. I had cheese sandwich for lunch -- granddaughter had bottle of coke (concerned about mold on cheese). Enjoyable trip. Still have blankets and pottery from that day Takes a good half day to explore the market. Grandaughter purchased a rip-off watch-----... More

Cycling coast to coast from Miami, FL to San Francisco, CA I arrived in El Paso, TX I decided to take a day trip over the foot bridge - very simple and straight forward Lots to see/buy/smell and do, which will happily take half a day or more if you allow for a meal as well. Impressive place and some... More

I flew into El Paso during Easter weekend, and wanted to visit "mainland Mexico" for the first time, so I parked my rental car on Sante Fe Ave and walked across the bridge to El mercado. I found it a little bit odd that I was the only white person I saw the entire time I spent there, but also... More

Everybody that visits Juarez should take a half-day or so and walk the market. Lots of junk for sale, but some good stuff too. Especially fresh fruit and veggies at cut rate prices. The clothes are cheap, but generally low quality. Its a really strange place were prostitutes work side by side with childrens clothes stores, jeans and fresh fruit... More

Stayed in El Paso for business and decided to go over to Juarez and experience the shopping and culture... got some really good deals and it was overall a very exciting day. Sometimes you just HAVE to experience things for yourself! The people while friendly were definitely hawking their goods and it wasn't easy to say no or at least... More

It is a great place to get souvenirs at a really good price. My husband thought he was schooling me, and telling me not to buy the first thing at the first price, but I had to remind him that I shopped in West Africa before...if I can wheel and deal there, I can wheel and deal anywhere... Great place... More

While I agree with the other reviewer that the mercado is hectic and overwhelming to the senses, it is also one of the places you should go to if you plan on buying Mexican handicrafts. The hecticness of the market is just part of Mexican culture and it's like that all over Mexico, so its not just a tourist thing... More
