Is this a "shopping post"? Are there interesting handicrafts, artwork, antiques, or other items that people typically buy there?

No TJ-specific handicrafts. But Mercado de Artesanias and Rosarito have a decent selection if you want to send something home. Better items are found elsewhere in Mexico. Wine from the Valle is a great gift. - Nov 5, 2017
