A nicely done (if fanciful) take on a Mexican market, this 2 level collection of boutiques features a courtyard, fountain and public art - get your picture taken with the metal Mariachis. The upscale stores sell clothing, jewellery and decorative items. A pleasant way to spend an hour (and your money).

Colorful shops reflect authentic and historic items available "South of the Border." You'll spend time browsing through the tiled rooms oozing with charm and inviting gifts. Everything from books, garments, decor, art, crafts, and more can be purchased, but it is not a souvenir place.

Shops here have a great selection of things from Mexico and very reasonable prices. Pottery, cook books, fabric, clothes, tiles...whatever you are looking for, you are sure to find.

There is a lot to look at in the bazaar, from kitchen equipment to clothes to children's toys to sacred artifacts, so go slowly. But after a while one can get dizzy from the mass of colors, all very Mexican indeed. But don't let that put you off from visiting because you can take a rest from the too colorful... More

I would go back to this place on the edge of Old Town again and again to visit the little shops with Mexican and international crafts and gifts. This is the place to go to get authentic and unique finds. Service in the shops was friendly and there was tons to see. Kids and adults alike will love it!

I stumbled upon this location years ago and while I don't get to San Diego often, when I do, I make sure to swing by! The textiles and handicrafts are just stunning and the colors and variety of their merchandise makes it a treat. I highly recommend it!
