Traditional fixed markets in Mexico go by a variety of names such as “mercados públicos” (public markets), “mercados municipales” (municipal markets) or even more often simply “mercados” (markets). What is distinctive about these markets is that they are almost always housed in buildings owned and operated by the local government, with numerous stands inside rented by individual merchants, which usually sell produce and other basic food staples. This market developed in Mexico as a way to regulate pre Hispanic markets called “tianguis”. These tianguis markets still remain in Mexico, with the most traditional held on certain days, put up and taken down the same day, much the way it was done in Mesoamerica.
These fixed mercados can be found in any town of any size in Mexico. Often, these markets are accompanied one or more days per week by tianguis which sets up around the main building. However, the largest, best developed and most numerous fixed markets are in Mexico City, which has over 300, eighty of which are specialty markets dedicated to one or more classes of merchandise such as gourmet food, plants, cut flowers, candy and more.

Since you wrote your impressions on it, can you tell me what sih is ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)
Sih is the compelling and heartwarming love story between traditional mexican food with an inexplicably high libido (aka Taqueria or Taco Manuel) and grumpy american crackers (aka Oh!no! Ritz). Tears will fill your eyes as you flip through the pages featuring passionate moments with mind-blowing and avant garde artwork, where unrealistic big hands are meant to represent the sizes of the characters’ hearts and excessively long necks are meant to represent the lengths of their throbbing meatwands.
The latest chapter has recently been translated by some guy who thinks that he’s married to Makoto, Ban, and Genos (who is Genos? isn’t Ritz the main character?), so read at your own risk!
