Tuesday Tianguis

Recommendations

A typical outdoor Mexican market. Called “tianguis,” these markets pop up in neighborhoods around the city with a weekly rotation. This one, on Tuesdays, is right outside Lardo, so you can grab breakfast and then walk around the market, where you’ll find all the produce, including fresh-cut fruit, artisan salsas, herbologist remedies, traditional Mexican copal incense, hand-carved wooden serving utensils, and a lively, local scene.

Notes from Tuesday Tianguis:
Every Tuesday, three small blocks of side streets in west Condesa are blocked off to traffic for a fun little farmers' market (called Tianguis de Condesa, Martes, in Spanish). The pink tarps which cover the entire market are actually quite important as they signify that this market is a part of a government-sanctioned program. They ensure the legitimacy of the sellers, which can trade in the tinaguis’. The government-run organization is called the “System of Markets on Wheels” (Sistema de Mercados Sobre Ruedas). It’s named as such since these same vendors have to be mobile and move their shops around the city, wherever the market is open that day.
