Tonala Market January 31

Thursdays and Sundays are market days in Tonala, a suburb of Guadalarja, so we decided to make an excursion from Ajijic to see what it was all about. Our neighbors, John and Marie, were happy to come along, John even offered to drive. How could we turn that down? Jerry was pretty happy that he finally was able to be a passenger instead of the driver (Jerry is driver on our rental car).
Tonala has a big outdoor shopping market where you can buy just about anything. Beautiful handmade crafts, silver, blown glass, ceramic and pottery. You could furnish and decorate your entire house here. People come from all over the country to shop here because of the quality and prices (unbeatable). We strolled around for a couple hours then met up with John and Marie for lunch.This is a picture of pottery before it has been glazed. These are mostly large pots and unbelievably they sell for $10.00 for a set of three!

Are those pears and peppers pottery or what?

Is that pottery?? or ceramics. Pottery is hand thrown, ceramic is not.
The market looks really colorfull. Must be a joy to be there and browse around.
I can image Jerry being happy to be driven instead him having to drive. Especially in Mexico.
