Since Market Square  is one of the largest Mexican markets outside of Mexico, it shouldn’t come as a surprise that it’s home to several of San Antonio’s  best Mexican import shops. Visitors looking for Mexican goods—everything from popular guayaberas (the short-sleeved, open-collared shirts worn in most tropical locales) to copper sinks and tin ornaments to Mexican wrestling masks—have plenty to choose from around here.
For the basics, head to Perales Mexican Imports (210/223-4802), Naturaleza Celestial (210/227-9254), or Santiago Mexican Imports (888/522-8434, www.earthtomarket.com ).
For something a bit more unique, drop by Old Mexico Imports (210/222-0072), which specializes in talavera goods. Talavera is a white glazed ceramic with simple or colorfully decorated designs on everything from plates and bowls to tile and furnishings.
The jewelry selection is impressive at A Touch of Mexico (210/225-5988) and shoppers can find religious items and pre-Columbian clay products at Olmeca Imports (210/271-0858).
