The heart of one of the largest tianguis in Guadalajara can be found at the intersection of Avenida Patria and Avenida Tabachines. Tianguis Loma Bonita stretches from this intersection many blocks in either direction in Avenida Tabachines, and along Avenida Patria to the east. This tianguis is not as large as el Baratillo, but it’s not as generally dangerous either, and of interest is that it has more people bringing their own things from home to sell from tarps on the ground. In other words, this tianguis is part yard sale, if you will, in addition to the established metal and tarp puestos.
