Lots to look at but It was too much for me as a tourist for buying. There was food, pottery, candles, and any trinket you could imagine.

This market is pretty much a big bazaar. You find everything from fresh groceries to clothing, souvenirs, medicine etc... If you want to get a taste of the Mexican culture this is a great place to check out and get some good colorful pictures too....More

El Popo is an authentic Mexican Market located downtown on Revolucion Ave. where you see the large clock on the sidewalk. The market features fruits, vegetables, religious items, souveniers, and many other items.

Stopped in here real quick...it's a great place to look around and get a feel for the market in Tijuana. Though I didn't purchase anything here, you can certainly find a wide variety of items.

I kept reading about how this was one of the best markets in Tijuana, huge, full of arts and crafts and great stuff to buy yada yada... I found it to be quite small with not much more on sale than spices, cheese and fruit....More

Google it. Easy to get there. Make sure your cell phone internet works there so you can get maps and navigate. I've gotten lost several times in TJ ( it's apart of the adventure) and now I know my way around.

Yes, I believe it is as safe as any market in Mexico. Fruits and vegetables need to be cleaned properly.
