Midtown Fodor's choice

This vibrant shop sells Mexican art, jewelry, and gifts. Look for the pithy Keepin' It Paisa line of T-shirts, hoodies, and ball caps in the adjacent Placita MX space, where several vendors sell furniture, clothing, and other items.

Downtown Commons


A gathering spot for locals and tourists as much as a place to shop, dine, catch a movie, or sip a cocktail, this multiblock complex adjoins the Golden 1 Center.

Midtown Farmers Market


The five-block Saturday-morning market's wares include prepared foods, street food, housewares, clothing, and artisanal crafts, so there's plenty to enjoy even if you don't need organic or sustainable produce. The market also sponsors family activities, and musicians perform.
