The largest Mexican marketplace outside of Mexico, this delightful experience of bargain-hunting and unique shopping awaits you. Across the way, the Farmers Market Plaza (shops and food court) combines the cultural & artistic influences of the Southwest and south of the border.

Shops at La Villita

La Villita was San Antonio's first neighborhood. Today La Villita is home to many stores including art galleries, craft shops, jewelry shops, and clothing stores. It also is home to restaurants, which enrich the experience with the taste of San Antonio.

King Williams District

A 25-block area near downtown on the south bank of the San Antonio River, the District was once the most elegant residential area in the city. Prominent German merchants originally settled the area. It was zoned as the state's first historic district, and has once again become a fashionable neighborhood.

San Antonio Missions

In the 18th century, the Spanish church established five Catholic missions along the San Antonio River, primarily to extend its dominion northward from Mexico, but also to convert the native population. What remains of the largest concentration of missions in North America provides an interesting look into Texas' history.
