Saturday January 21, 2012, from 10:00 am - 6:00 pm, Parque la Ceiba will hold its regular "tianguis" (pronounced tee-an-geese). Tianguis is a Nahuatl word from the Aztecs which refers to an open-air market. The Mexican tianguis, traditionally, will be set up on a certain day in certain neighborhood. Markets can be specialized to one particular product or varied, taking on the feel of a flea market.

The tianguis at Parque la Ceiba attracts craftspeople and artisans to gather and offer their wares and services. Local families and small farmers will offer fresh produce, the park's nursery will be selling indigenous plants and consultations with traditional Maya healers will be available. The park is open to the public free of charge and is a wonderful gathering place for local families. There will be tamales, mucbi chicken and tortas of traditional cochinita pibil and relleno negro.
