In Tijuana, Mexico, like in other border towns, a combination of different social and economic factors has created a set of conditions that encouraged the formation of a complex system of informal street markets commonly known as mercados sobreruedas. This term can be translated as “on wheels markets”, revealing a key aspect of the markets: the constant moving from one barrio (neighborhood) to another.
