Comparing to the americanized plaze santa cecilia this felt not that touristy, you did not have to stop every second because people forced you to buy stuff. All the mexicans are really friendly and helpful here.

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.

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.
