Saturday February 11, 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. There will also be story-telling and a show for the kids and vendors offering regional cuisine!

The tianguis at Parque la Ceiba is held regularly on the third Saturday of every month. The park is open to the public free of charge and is a wonderful gathering place for local families.
