Visited as we got off as part of our HOHO tour. Gret market place to visit but unfortunately, had a lot of similar stores selling the same merchandise. They had a lot of Mexican art, which unfortunately was too large for us to take back...More

Nice shopping for Mexican goods that may be difficult to find at home. Be sure to compare the prices since many stores carry the same items. There and restaurants and a food plaza that sells Tex-Mex food as well as local and Mexican beers.

We spent time here on our last day visiting San Antonio. There are many things available for sale including items you would typically find in a Mexican market. We enjoyed the pottery and food items!

After visiting the Market Square, I will never need to visit Mexico again! We were here on a Saturday afternoon and there were concerts, street performers, magicians, street food vendors and shops galore! The atmosphere was very lively and we had fun here. Everything here...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
