“Fiesta San Antonio” (or simply “Fiesta”) is an annual festival held in April in San Antonio, Texas, and is the city’s signature event (along with some events held in the following surrounding cities: Boerne, Schertz, Windcrest, Balcones Heights, and Alamo Heights) since the late 19th century. The festival began as a single event to honor the memory of the battles of the Alamo and San Jacinto
The “El Mercado” building was built as a Works Progress Administration project during 1938-1939 after the existing municipal market house (known as the Giles building) was torn down. The new building was originally named the “Municipal Truck Market”, but locals commonly called it the “Farmer’s Market”, as farmer’s sold their produce straight from their trucks inside the open air building. In 1975, the last produce was sold there, and the market house underwent renovation to convert it into an enclosed air-conditioned mercado
