Mercado Replacing Flea Market Downtown

A decades old flea market in Downtown El Paso will soon be replaced by a new building housing a mercado. Local owners of the property at the corner of S. Oregon and Paisano decided to upgrade the area to contribute to Downtown's revitalization, according to a story in the El Paso Times.
"Mercado del Paisano" will include individual shops and small restaurants, covering a total of 17,500 square feet. Twenty-five shops have been leased, but no tenant names have been disclosed.
A property located across Paisano from the mercado site is rumored to be the location of a future Walgreen's store. A flea market is currently located on that property as well.
