Introduction

The tianguis, or Indian markets are fascinating remnants of the Pre-Hispanic time, remaining very lively in most of the Mexican villages and cities. The favorite market day is Sunday when Indians can leave their daily work and go to the market to sell their products and buy food. Some places have a daily market. While traveling in Mexico, don’t miss the opportunity.
