More than 1,000 local artisans from Michoacán, Guanajuato, Puebla and Veracruz participated in the 17th edition of the Tunich Fair, which brought together national and foreign tourists who, motivated by the sale of different types of Mexican handicrafts, went to the town of Dzityá, located within the Mérida municipality .
The event was inaugurated on July 27 and finished on August 5. In addition to crafts, visitors were able to enjoy typical Yucatecan food and other gastronomic delicacies from the participating states, as well as comedy and musical shows.
Pottery, jewelry, liquors, sweets and various textile products were made available to attendees, who walked through the isles of this fair in search of the best offer to decorate their homes, a souvenir or gift for a loved one.
Despite the diffusion that was given to the Tunich Fair and the large influx of people that was registered in Diztyá, some merchants said that the sales were not as high as expected, as there were many “curious people” who only took advantage of free transportation to walk around the fair, enjoyed the comedy and musical shows, but did not buy anything.
Such is the case of the artisan Martha Ortiz, originally from Tekax. The embroiderer explained that it is the second time that she has participated in the event, however, the sales have not been so profitable.
For his part, the carpenter from Veracruz, Federico Diaz said he was satisfied with the event and declared that, “things went well for him.” He also stressed the need to have a larger space to place stands, so more families can attend the fair, and more sellers can offer their products.
The most benefited were the Dzitya residents, as many of them adapted their land to provide parking service -charging 20 pesos per car- . The Tunich Fair aroused the interest of a large number of people, – especially at night – when long lines of cars could be seen on the streets of Dzitya, and the improvised parking lots looked always full.
