Carniceria Guadalajara (also known as Guadalajara #2) is a market in the Springwells neighborhood of Southwest Detroit that offers a wide variety of nourishments, from beverages to high-quality meat, produce, groceries, and more.

Salvador Enriquez began the business by opening Carniceria Guadalajara #1 on the corner of Springwells and Navy, and, over time, he added to his chain of butcher shops, including #2 and #3.
