Tips

  • Featuring the largest Mexican market in the U.S., the Market Square provides a variety of dining, shopping and festivals.
  • It's a big flea market with several vendors. They're really friendly, and you can attempt to barter prices. Some have really great things, some junk, but a great & colorful experience.
  • Shop, food, drinks, and music! This place is usually happening early on. Hit this market square party early on THEN make your way towards the River Walk where it gets happening later on in the day.
  • Look around at all the shops. They all have the same items but not the same price! :)
  • I hope you love our beautiful city just as much as we do!!! Be sure to stop by Mi Tierra Cafe open 24/7, Hemisfair Park, the Riverwalk, the Tower, & of course- The Alamo!!! :-D
  • This place will save you the 3hr drive to Mexico. Amazing Mexican product.
  • I had the sliced fruit with lime squeezed over it and chili sauce added. YUMMY!!!
  • Definitely enjoy breakfast at Mi Tierra early if you can. Just the decorations inside are worth the trip.
  • The rich culture of San Antonio abounds throughout the plazas of Market Square. Market Square is the largest Mexican market in the U.S. with a three-block outdoor plaza.
  • Bring cash, and get an El Pariso ice cream bar for a break from shopping.
  • The trolly is your best friend! One of the easiest ways to get around because traffic can be so crazy at times. Have change :) tip the drivers because they're so awesome a
  • Fiesta !!!! Love the food.
  • None of the prices are set in stone, always try & lower the price & most of the time you will.
  • Quirky market with lots of souvenirs to take home. Nice restaurant at the end too.
  • HOAKEY SHOPS & MARKET!!! Do NOT waste your time. The city & tours say this is a "must see" and I would absolutely, positively disagree.
  • Fan Fair great if you love Tejano music. Mi Tierra great place to eat
  • Love this place
  • If you want to feel like you're in Mexico, go to El Mercado to shop and eat at Mi Tierra (and drink!) There's always a party going on, and it's a great place for photo ops for your profile.
  • Me encant
  • A bunch of touristy stuff. It's usually crowded and hot, but if you are clever and come during winter during the week, it's really easy to get in and out, and you can haggle prices easier.
