I guess I wasn't to impressed with Ciudad Juarez shopping. I found very few places with homemade(?) items. It doesn't cater to Americans like other places ive been across the border.

Every city has a market like this one. You may call it a flea market where you live. But go here expecting to find all kinds of souvenirs. BEWARE: the prices a sellers asks are not what you should pay; counter-offer at half the price. The market may look shady, but it is simply old. It's worth a visit.

While touring downtown El Paso, we parked and took a shuttle back and forth (with another group of Americans) across the Rio Grande River to shop at the market in the neighboring city of Juarez. They had a big selection of leather goods, art work, pottery, jewelry, blankets, hats and clothing. I got a nice leather belt, some blankets and... More

We love this market , it's in the safe zone so ok but still gave to take care as anywhere on the border . Bought real leather bags for a third of the cost in El Paso Texas. Also boots and leather goods . Traditional mexican tops too all good but watch your bag it is Mexico

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

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
