Ladies in folk attire shop at the Sunday market or “tianguis” in Tlacolula, Oaxaca. The open-air market of Tlacolula is the oldest and busiest in Latin America. Week over week, more than a thousand merchants bring to the market a great selection of products ranging from fruits and vegetables, to farm animals, mezcal, handcrafts and hand-made clothing. Visiting this market is particularly fascinating- many Tlacolulans wear folk attire and speak Zapotec as their mother tongue.
