Now, weâ€™d like to shed a little light on some of San Antonioâ€™s greatest downtown treasures. First up? The historic Market Square!
San Antonians have been shopping at Market Square since before Texas joined the United States. The first businesses to open on Market Square were a pharmacy and dry goods store. The area also served as a marketplace for produce and other foods. Art has always also had a special place in this vibrant cultural center.
Located on West Commerce, Market Square today features a Farmers Market whereÂ shops and food courts combine the cultural, artistic and ethnic influences of the Southwest and Mexico. Just across the way, donâ€™t forget to visit the El Mercado, the largest Mexican marketplace outside of Mexico.
Looking for a unique, one-of-a-kind gift made by a working San Antonio artist?Â While at Market Square, you will always find an artist/craftsmen set-up along the outside plazas demonstrating and selling their unique handmade items.
Stay for lunch or dinner!
And on August 4-5, visit Market Square for Primer Sabado (first Saturday) for a special two-day back to school event filled with local entertainment, arts & crafts, children activities, food & more.
