On Central you can get custom-etched drinking glasses, plastic lawn chairs, clothing, office supplies, jewelry, candy or cigarettes, cell phones, groceries, electronics, appliances, junk, and trinkets. Cheap to expensive and everything in between. You can even stop and feed the pigeons, or get a snow cone. With a little exploring, be adventurous, you can find just about anything - Jane might even tell you where to get that bargain $1 shirt.
At Plaza Cinco de Mayo, over behind the anthropology museum, is a small artisans' market where you can find souvenirs at affordable prices.
After a couple of hours shopping it’s a three block walk to the fish market for lunch - but that’s another story.
