THE TIANGUIS CULTURAL DE CHOPO is not an average flea market. It has been running since 1980 as a home for Mexico City’s punk scene. It serves as a home for leftists, anarchists, feminists, animal liberationists, anti-corporate, and any other radicals looking for a space to hang out with people like them.
AJ+ journalist Andalusia Knoll reported on the Chopo and put together this short vide. Cheko, a punk who has traveled three hours every week for 10 years to come hang out at the market says, “All are welcome!” So add this to your to-do list next time you go to Mexico City.
