Colorful Market Square has the feel of a small Mexican downtown plaza, where food booths, retail kiosks, artist stalls, street performers, and musicians gather on weekends or pleasant spring and summer days. Ballet folklórico dancers or mariachi bands at local festivals are held here throughout the year. Inside the adjacent El Mercado building, a mall of Mexican import vendors re-creates an authentic border-style marketplace where you can buy everything from huge sombreros and Mexican vanilla to scorpion-inlaid paperweights; you’ll find a few high-quality stores, including Galería Ortiz, here too. In addition to food stalls, two popular Mexican restaurants edge Market Square, including Mi Tierra.
