Map & Details>>

When looking for Mexican imports, head to what we lovingly call Little Mexico, the small Yaqui reservation of Guadalupe. Right on the border of Tempe, Guadalupe's Mercado Mexico is muy auténtico. Sure, they have the standard Mexican tchotchkes on hand: colorful ceramic figurines, bundles of chile peppers, and celestial iron hangings. But they also have top-notch Mexican ceramics, so even the serious collector of talavera pottery will have plenty to peruse. There are also more calaveras than you've ever seen outside a Dia de los Muertos festival, and you can even snag a cow skull if you're going for that old-timey cowboy décor.
