  • 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.
     
    • Other items that can be found at the market:
    • Large selection of one-of-a-kind jewelry made with silver, turquoise, pearls, precious stones, feathers, leather and macramé
    • ​Wide assortment of silver jewelry from Taxco
    • The famous Oaxacan wool rugs which are woven using natural dyes from flowers, herbs and insects
    • Huichol Indian yarn paintings, beaded artwork and jewelry
    • Talavera pottery, dishware, serving pieces and sinks
    • Variety of table linens in cotton and lace
    • Handwoven baskets, placemats and bags
    • Masks, bowls and other handicrafts
    • Locally-grown coffee beans and honey
    • Gourmet nuts, both raw and roasted
