Tianguis de la 94
This is one of those markets that is predominantly used by locals, as it’s well away from the tourist area of Cancun. Tianguis de la 94 is the place to buy and sell everything, from clothes and kitchenware to bicycles, plants, personal care products and so much more. In Mexican slang there’s a word such items: chácharas – referring to unnecessary, cheap and second hand products, which are actually very practical. Some locals sell the things they don’t need anymore, so it’s a paradise for those looking for vintage stuff and, as a plus, everything is cheap. Here you’ll see the real Mexico and its popular culture, with merchants touting for trade from the customers walking by. The food is delicious; try a delicious mondongo or a huarache. The market is open Thursdays and Saturdays.
