The tianguis known as baratillos are still in force in some communities of the state; unlike the days of the town squares, where they offer mainly fruits, vegetables or handicrafts of the region, El Baratillo promotes the trade of a wide variety of livestock, cattle, horses, sheep, goats and others, which have been raised by the same families of the town and other communities that come to sell on the day of El Baratillo.

Also, in El Baratillo you can enjoy the great seasoning of the cooks, through the exquisite barbecues, as well as the refreshing drinks of the region.

There are at least eight baratillos in Oaxaca: In Miahuatlán de Porfirio Díaz, in the Sierra Sur, San Antonio Yolomecatl, Magdalena Jaltepec, Villa de Tejupam, in the Mixteca, Etla, San Antonino Velasco, Zimatlán de Alvárez and Cuilápam de Guerrero in the Central Valleys, the latter takes place every Wednesday and is the closest to the capital city.
