Things to do in El Paso during spring break


El Paso Artist and Farmers Market

Every Saturday, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.

However, its original approach to arts and genuine local vibe make it a great source for locally grown agricultural produce and a cultural reminder of the binational identity of the Sun City.

Located on Anthony Street and San Antonio Avenue, the multipurpose space offers an environment that is friendly for all ages, with accessible activities for children and a great selection of food for everyone to enjoy.
