The Tianguis de los Martes (Tuesday Market) is a giant market held every Tuesday across the Queretaro road from the Luciernega mall above town. It stretches nearly 1,000 feet under giant tarps and beneath them just about anything is for sale: seasonal and imported produce, antiques, blown glass, hand-carved furniture, pirated DVDs, computers, tablets, boom-boxes, hand made huraches, Barbie dolls, goldfish, pet birds, tools, bicycles, buttons, used and new clothes, fresh fish, local honey and cheeses. Vendors are not all from San Miguel, but work a circuit of similar weekly outdoor markets in Queretaro and Guanajuato. There are scores of food stalls here (try "Huaraches Féliz," a kind of taco made on sopes the size of a shoe sole). Be wary of pickpockets as the crowds are often overwhelming, especially during holiday seasons. Come before 10 a.m. for more leisurely shopping.
