El Mercado, also affectionately known as El Mercadito by customers, originally opened in 1968. In 1988, Paul Rosado took over the market, and now it’s run by his children Tony and Marlene Rosado. El Mercado is a traditional Latin American marketplace that serves as a social, cultural, and commercial center for the local Latinx community. You can find traditional Mexican goods, live mariachi music, delicious Mexican food, and beautiful, traditional art. While El Mercado has changed over time to keep up with the times, Tony and Marlene have upheld the original spirit.
