This is a destination marketplace but it also has a great selection and good prices. I have purchased fruits, veggies, shirts, jeans, shoes, candy, plates, and flowers here. I was very happy with the purchases. Be sure to bargain! "Esto es mas baracho?"

This mercado is one of our favorite. It is huge! So many delicious places to eat. You can just about anything. Our kids have lots of fun shopping and eating here. Its a lot of fun to just walk and see everything they have.

This place is craziness X 10. Thousands of vendors squeezed into this market place and thousands of shoppers. You can buy anything you can imagine both locally made and from China. You can purchase knock-off designer bags and can get your makeup done. There is...More
