This is done by closing off streets to vehicle traffic so that merchants (called “ambulantes”, meaning street vendors) can set up their stalls on the on roadways. The natural pink coloration of this image is caused by sunlight filtering through the traditional plastic tarps used by sellers and vendors to protect themselves and their merchandise from the sun and rain.

The word tianguis comes from Nahuatl, the language spoken by the Aztecs or mexicas. Photo by Eduardo Barraza ©
