    Juarez Mercado and Cantina

    by kymbanm Updated Jun 13, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Mercado is chock full of vendor with local art, crafts, and knock offs. The prices are amazing by US standards!

    The stalls are colorful, and folks are friendly ... though they can be pushy if they haven't had a good day of sales. Bargaining is expected - don't ever pay the sticker price (if there are even stickers to be seen)!

    They close at 1800, and I arrived at 1805 - but still managed to browse a bit - I was just not into shopping that day (gasp!).

    What to buy: I'd go for the regional art and craft style of 'stuff'. A person in our party picked up a large service platter with beautful designs for about $10, and horsehair, hand built pot w/ an awesome wood and sinew stand for $20, and several pewter crosses for about $3 each!

    What to pay: When bargaining, start at half of what they ask for (if that sounds reasonable to you) and work from there. Cash is best - US dollars are always preferred over local pesos in this border town.

    What to buy: The Juarez Mercado carries all sorts of Mexican paraphernalia. From maracas to sombreros. A bit of a tourist trap.

    What to pay: Cheap
