  • 00:00:00 This video presents the Mexican markets, where people can buy and sell things such as food, clothing, and items needed for daily life. The markets are important for the city's economy, and without them, many people would not be able to survive. The markets have a particular schedule, and one is held on a certain day of the week. The name "tianguis" has been used for markets throughout history, and they continue to be called that today. The marketplaces do not require a lot of land, and people can set up their stalls anywhere. One of the market's main characteristics is that it is open daily, without any specific schedule.
  • 00:05:00 The video shows various markets in Mexico City, including the Tlatelolco market, which was known for its large concentration of animals and its active trade. Cortez wrote about the city's markets and their importance, mentioning the Tlatelolco market in particular. The market's prominence decreased after the Spanish conquest, but it was revived in the early 1800s. Other important markets, such as the San Juan market, were destroyed by the implacable piqueta. However, the Paz market, which retains its original construction, continues to operate. The nostalgia felt for former markets, such as the Tlatelolco market, is replaced by the modern and comfortable Mercado de la Paz.
  • 00:10:00 This video introduces the Tianguis y Mercados market in Mexico City, which is open to all colonias and neighborhoods of certain antiquity. Traditionally, it has been a center for selling vegetables and fruits. Fifteen years later, all the problems had returned, but the market continued to be the leading wholesale center in metropolitan Mexico. Nowadays, it offers a wide variety of products, including coffee. It also has a physical presence that includes a small café. This market is frequented by people from all classes of society. The market vendors sell products at low prices, which is beneficial to the lower classes.
  • 00:15:00 This documentary discusses the problems with the mercado de la Merced in Mexico City, which has lost its appeal to most citizens due to exploitation of sex workers and crime. One has to penetrate into a Neighborhood that acquired today a bad reputation due to part of the exploitation of sex workers and the crime. Then, one gets trapped in the middle of an embotellamiento (congestion) without feet or head. Chaos, negligence, and lack of proper lighting make the market aversive for most capitalinos. Traditionally, the market has lost its tradition due to lack of maintenance. There is no light, no sidewalks, and not enough water. There are also not enough keys to open the water taps. In addition, we need more water to fight the fires. The ambulantaje (mobile commerce) has harmed us badly because it occupies the places that we take away customers' view. We have organized marches and other issues, but the government does not listen to us. It is mainly due to the lack of understanding by politicians that this is a risk to us, the same people who come to buy in this market. We are here, 5,000 residents, and behind all of those apparent "I am" there is the person who
  • 00:20:00 The Mexican market is bustling with produce producers, agricultural societies of peasants and cooperatives, and also with ejidos and large farms and gardens that bring in their products. In the central food stores, 30% of Mexican food production is sold. The volume of horticultural national output rebases daily 30,000 tons of food and basic products. This 80% concentration of food products consumed by 20 million people in the Federal District and its suburban areas is concentrated here. The authorities at the central food store insist that there is no place for speculation in food products, and that market forces determine prices. However, this is not always the case. For example, the beds of refrigerator units typically maintain a temperature of zero degrees Celsius and are used to store products in order to avoid them maturing. These units are usually operated under commercial considerations of medium and high prices, which allows for the variety and richness of products on display here to have a price that is incomparable in any other commercial circuit. Prices can fluctuate greatly and rapidly like stock prices. The authorities at the food store insist that there is no need for monopolies in food products, though usually it is said that we speculate with food products. Prices are determined by the
  • 00:25:00 The "TIANGUIS Y MERCADOS" documentary follows a group of people who sell a variety of esoteric and herbal products at a small, local tianguis (market). Over time, the tianguis has evolved into a large, centralized market that can provide food for a large city-wide waste purification plant. Although the tianguis initially sold seeds and flowers for birds, over time it began to sell everything from seeds for avian plants to herbs for treating digestive problems. The market also specializes in herbs for sleep and anxiety, as well as plants for weight loss and bladder problems. One of the owners, Chango Mas, says that although some people don't believe in it, he believes in the power of the saints and feels that it is his duty to help people with financial difficulties and lack of work. The documentary concludes with a discussion of an infamous recent event at the tianguis: the sale of exotic animals. Although the tianguis dedicated to selling domesticated animals still exists, the atmosphere is depressing and unsanitary with obvious signs of neglect and abuse.
  • 00:30:00 This video shows different ways to dress up for celebrations, including for infantile and non-infantile events. We also find ceramic artisanship here, with triple water pitchers, fruit stands, and decorative items. We play games with water in general, as well as some of the more common tabletop games. Finally, we take a look at retail shops in Mexico City, with the contrasting experience of traditional markets vs. convenience stores. The comerciante (merchant) occupation is a full-time job with many challenges and opportunities for profit and loss. They often put their own safety at risk in their pursuit of profits. This video also covers the importance of tradition in the merchant's life, and how the current generation of businessmen must adapt to a changing market if they want to keep their traditions alive.
  • 00:35:00 In this documentary, we follow a group of Mexican traders as they go about their business of selling goods on the street. Each trader has a different client base, with some selling to older generations and others catering to a younger clientele. Despite their different clientele, the traders all have something in common - they all work to make a living. One trader, who has been working at the market for over 80 years, offers an example of the tradition and history that the lagunilla market has created. The documentary also shows how the traders negotiate prices and how they interact with their customers. It is an interesting look at the world of Mexican street trade and the importance of tradition in the lives of the traders.

The tianguis is a way for people from all generations to connect and share their music, art, and experiences.
