El Mercado

Not just a Mexican grocery store- El Mercado is three floors of Tijuana shopping mall crossed with an Istanbul bazaar, selling everything from toasted grasshoppers to snakeskin cowboy boots. This is the place for the adventurous cook; mix your own Mexican spice blend, get that hand- made mortar and pestal and grind out a homemade chile verde sauce. Multiple Mexican restaurants if you get hungry, dueling mariachis for those days when one mariachi band isn't enough.
