There are so many shops here that have all the bargains of Mexico without the trip there! Clothes, hand painted vases, pictures, jewelry, etc. Don't miss the market place, good place to take the family

This is a typical Mexican market in the middle of San Antonio - your just using American dollars instead of pesos. There is quite a variety of dishes, sculptures, hats, jewelry and cow horns!

The market square is adjacent to Mi Terra restaurant. So stop and eat and then go to the market. They have unique items and good prices.

The baby clothes in Mexican fashion drew me in because we’re expecting our first great granddaughter. We also bought some Mexican pottery that led to a bit of price negotiation as the signs were misleading. The shop keeper agreed he needed to change the sign...More

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
