Little street with stalls selling all kind of all Mexican tourist stuff. Looks like nice and very colourful handy craft. Also street kitchens with very nice smell when passing through. Should you be in the area, go visit. If not, you will not miss it.

Went there on a Sunday. The shops and restaurants were authentic Mexican. There are a lot of shops in a small area selling Mexican style wares. This was a very neat experience and would highly recommend visiting this place.

Lots of small shops and eateries. Good if you want trinkets with a Mexican flair. Sort of a "farmer's market" feel with open air stalls, etc.

This was a 3 min walk from the first hop on hop off bus stop. It is quite a pretty Mexican area comprising of a short street of shops, stalls and restaurants.

The stalls were unique, colourful, and the food delicious. Don't miss out on this hidden gem. Go Dodgers!

Don't skip this pedestrian street. Eat in one of the small taco eateries. The buildings are gorgeous. The souvenirs stands are reasonably priced.

It's part historical and part commercial market but on a very small scale. Lots of traditional Mexican Restaurants. Unfortunately did not have time to see. This was a side trip after I had been to Central Station so filled in the afternoon.

The Olvera Street “market” consists of store fronts and stands selling cheap T-shirts, trinkets, Dia de Muertos products, (fake?) leather goods, and other bizarre things over one city block. It’s only worth a look if you are in the area already, and is no different...More
