Market Days en Harlingen, Texas

Cada primer sábado del mes se celebran los ya muy populares “Market Days”de la calle Jackson en la ciudad de Harlingen, Texas.

Por todo el valle se encuentran los bazares conocidos aquí como “pulgas” o “flea markets”.  La palabra “flea” significa pulga así que de ahí el nombre.  Decidí escribir acerca de este evento en particular porque lo encuentro diferente,  pues se lleva a cabo en el centro de esta ciudad el cual cuenta con tiendas de antigüedades y galerías de arte muy originales.

Además de disfrutar comprando, me gusta ir a escuchar la música en vivo y comer los tradicionales tacos de fajitas, por lo general la música es del género rock clásico el cual parece ser el favorito de los visitantes de “Market Days”.

Algunos artículos que usted va a encontrar aquí son piezas de vidrio, textiles, plantas de ornato, repostería, decoración para el jardín, muebles de madera, artículos de colección, y aún más si visita las tiendas de la calle Jackson. Una de mis cosas favoritas es que aquí se encuentran obras de arte de artistas locales a unos precios increíblemente accesibles, he tenido la oportunidad de comparar los precios y la calidad de lo que aquí se ofrece con otras galerías del Valle de Texas y la verdad es que recomiendo mucho que vengan a ver lo que aquí se ofrece.

No se lo pierda. de las 9:00 AM a las 3:00 PM

A bird does not sing because it has an answer, it sings because it has a song.-Maya Angelou. La Vida Valle is where I write about "la vida" life in the Rio Grande Valley. From this bi-cultural corner on the tip of Texas, I share my poems and spiritual and travel experiences. I also blog about the arts,nature and my passion for historic preservation and architecture. But most important, let's talk about "la vida" - living our lives - in a vacation state of mind. Contributions and comments are always welcome .

The Indigenous Women of Oaxaca

Happy, tired, busy, curious and friendly. The women of Oaxaca are never idle. Always busy, always pensive, almost distant yet ever present. During a recent trip to Oaxaca, my husband Lupe took the photos below of these incredib...
