The International Marketplace is not only a favorite of Las Vegas locals, it is a tourist destination for visitors of this city. The International Marketplace is located at 5000 South Decatur and it is near the intersection of Tropicana in Las Vegas.

Anything and everything food is stocked at the International Marketplace. The marketplace is actually a gigantic building that is stocked full of hard to find exotic food items.
Many people refer to the International Marketplace as an eye candy destination! It literally is one of the biggest exotic food markets in the world.
