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

My husband and I went to the City Market just last week. We took the trolley into Juarez, and walked to the market. Be prepared. All your senses will be assaulted. The people are very friendly, and spoke English very well; however, the pressure to buy was so intense I couldn't really enjoy the visit. As a matter of fact,... More
