The Tianguis

For those who really like to shop – and even for those who don’t – the Tianguis is a must. People come from miles around to attend this open-air market held every Thursday in La Peñita.
From local artists displaying silver and handmade jewelry, glassware, Talavera pottery, beautiful Oaxacan wool rugs and the famous Huichol Indian beaded artwork – to vendors with carts of ceviche and jumbo shrimp, homemakers selling fresh pastries and linens, and pickup trucks overflowing with poblano peppers and watermelons – you name it, they’ve got it here. This is one of the largest and most well-known markets in the area.
