Went early on a Friday morning and had breakfast and shopped the rest of the morning into early afternoon. Not crowded at all.

We enjoyed the shopping, strolling, sitting, eating, and relaxing. A lot of the shops have the same merchandise, but it was still fun.

We heard about this place while in Texas, we were viewing the Alamo and decided to take the 20 minute walk down to the market. We are glad we did. See all the local culture and lots to things to buy.

The restaurants are excellent in the market--authentic Mexican, delicious. The rest of the market is a lot of the same tourist-y junk you find in many flea markets--just more expensive.

Nice shops and restaurants here. Would definitely go again. We could walk from our hotel or take the shuttle.

I agree with a spending cap. I would say for food AND a souvenir-$50. I also would empower them with the phrase "not yet". There are so many high pressure sales going on in this market. Let them know that they are the one in... More

I walked there with a foreign visitor and it was daylight. There were many homeless people along the route and I did not feel overly unsafe but I did not feel super safe either as we walked to and from. I would not walk... More
