Christmas is just around the corner! If you haven’t gotten all your holiday shopping yet, there’s no need to worry, because the perfect one-stop shop is right here in town. Head to the Market Square for unique gifts for all your loved ones.
Something for Everyone
Throughout the various shops and stalls, you’ll see artwork in abundance, as well as a plethora of nick-nacks, artifacts, and handmade goods to suit a wide range of tastes. If there’s a sports fan in your life, you’ll find hats and other articles emblazoned with their favorite team’s logo. If you plan to visit someone who’s homesick for the Lone Star State, consider bringing them something that shouts “Texas,” like a wide-brimmed hat, bold belt buckle, or even a set of horns to evoke the open range. Younger children might appreciate a charming stuffed animal, or a hand-carved toy like the little frogs that chirp when you scratch their back.
Stock the Kitchen
Home cooks and foodies are easy to shop for at the Market Square, with shops specializing in regional cookware and ingredients. Don’t overlook the traditional stone tools like molcajetes for making salsa or metates for grinding corn. It also won’t be hard to find a molinillo, a wooden whisk used to give Mexican hot chocolate its signature froth. When it’s time to serve dinner, the market has it covered with ceramics, gorgeous Talavera pottery, and locally made wares.
December Events at the Market
The Market Square will host a variety of holiday activities in the weeks ahead. On December 10 at 10 a.m., La Familia Cortez Restaurants will hold the annual Gran Tamalada. For the past decade, this event has celebrated the holiday tradition of making tamales, so don’t miss this opportunity to enjoy a freshly made tamal before Christmas. The event will run until 6 p.m. On December 16, Santa Claus will also be there for pictures and letters.
