Great time, spent some real money! Negotiated some great bargains. Went on a Thursday so not every shop was open.

i had some business in El Paso a couple weeks ago and while me and my friend where there we decided to cross the border to do some shopping and get lunch! We had a taxi drive us across the border, and drop us off right in front of the market, we arrived around 8 am which was about 2... More

We had a good experience with the City Market in Juarez, Mexico. Understand going in what it is; a market where you are expected to barter, and for the most part you will find friendly, good-natured merchants. As with many places in the world, and certainly is the case in Juarez, one should be aware of one's surroundings at all... More

I guess I wasn't to impressed with Ciudad Juarez shopping. I found very few places with homemade(?) items. It doesn't cater to Americans like other places ive been across the border.

Every city has a market like this one. You may call it a flea market where you live. But go here expecting to find all kinds of souvenirs. BEWARE: the prices a sellers asks are not what you should pay; counter-offer at half the price. The market may look shady, but it is simply old. It's worth a visit.

While touring downtown El Paso, we parked and took a shuttle back and forth (with another group of Americans) across the Rio Grande River to shop at the market in the neighboring city of Juarez. They had a big selection of leather goods, art work, pottery, jewelry, blankets, hats and clothing. I got a nice leather belt, some blankets and... More

We love this market , it's in the safe zone so ok but still gave to take care as anywhere on the border . Bought real leather bags for a third of the cost in El Paso Texas. Also boots and leather goods . Traditional mexican tops too all good but watch your bag it is Mexico

I ended up here having been staying in El Paso. We walked over the Mexican/US border, really straightforward (with a British passport). The whole town was buzzing with life and interesting sites. The market stocked your expected touristy bits and bobs but was a fun experience and the traders were pretty laid back giving space to take things in your... More

Cycling coast to coast from Miami, FL to San Francisco, CA I arrived in El Paso, TX I decided to take a day trip over the foot bridge - very simple and straight forward Lots to see/buy/smell and do, which will happily take half a day or more if you allow for a meal as well. Impressive place and some... More
