City Market
With a large main floor and a second story balcony filled with booths, you'll find arts and crafts, jewelry, clothing, rugs and blankets, pinatas and all the other typical tourist items. Haggling over price is expected.

Cuauhtemoc Market
Located just southwest of the Our Lady of Guadalupe Mission, this is a bustling market like you'll find in larger cities and towns in Mexico and Central America. The 3-story market building features small restaurants on the main floor and shops on the upper floors. Outside is a bustling open-air food market with fruits, vegetables, meats, cheeses, etc.

This three-story store is another landmark. Mexican made furniture is now the focus on the first and second floors with glass and ceramics, plus gold and silver jewelry mixed in. The enclosed glass factory on the third floor features a viewing window where you can watch artesans create hand-blown glass pieces. Good prices, for shipping is available. Opens daily from 10am to 6pm, credit cards are accepted.

Duty Free Mexico
These stores specializes in perfumes and colognes. Prices are substantially below U.S. retail.

Plaza de las Americas Mall
This modern mall, with marble floors, huge sky lights, a 3-screen movie theater and even an ice-skating rink resembles a newer American mall. The stores are an assortment of those catering to locals and visitors. The large S-Mart grocery store is an interesting place to browse and see the similarities and differences with U.S stores.

Within a few blocks of the mall you'll find several stores selling Mexican crafts and furniture, plus museums, local restaurants and several American fast food restaurants including Burger King, McDonalds, Church's Chicken and Golden Corral. The ice rink opened in 1994, offers public skating everyday with afternoon and evening hours.

Pueblito Mexicano Mall
Built to resemble a Mexican village, the indoor courtyard looks like the town plaza with shops and restaurants around the perimeter. It is a beautiful building with stained glass windows and intricate stone work, but its occupancy rate has probably never exceeded 50%. There are a few shops and restaurants, plus a good-sized grocery store.
