About 3 miles from the Las Vegas Strip inside The Boulevard Mall, El Mercado or “The Marketplace” is home to hundreds of shops and a collection of restaurants where locals and tourists can get a taste of culture from around the world.  It would be easy to spend hours strolling down each colorful aisle to check out the individually owned and operated small businesses that make up El Mercado.  They’re each full of unique items ranging from jewelry, leather sandals and home decor to formal dresses for proms and weddings and even produce.  It’s truly a shoppers paradise!
