"Tianguis"(in Valle it is held on Mondays, from 7 or 8 in the morning, til late in the afternoon) is like an outdoor flea market, with many different booths. Alot of the clothing and shoes being sold are used items that have been brought back from trips to the U.S. to sell. There are various booths that sell C.D.s and DVDs, at very low prices but decent quality. There are many booths that sell fresh foods, such as fruits and vegtables, fresh meat, and tortillas. This is also a great place to grab a bite to eat. There are alot of different booths where you can sit down and eat, but plan on getting there early to get a table. And don't worry about getting wet because all the booths are covered with tents. It is really a great place to go in Valle, you can find almost anything. From the guy who does a very good job cleaning and fixing jewlrey for a really low price to the best "carnitas" you will ever have. The people in Valle are very nice! Downtown Valle is very, very beautiful.
