A real Mexican usually goes in search of the best deals, but in Tijuana, the perfect place is the famous sobreruedas (street market).
These places are responsible for bringing products and services of all kinds as close as possible to you: vegetables, clothes, footwear, haircuts, food, drinks, hardware, etc. And although most of the time these are known to be second-hand or semi-new things, there are those who claim that even among these are the best, because they are not only broad with things in good condition, but they are cheap.
If you are not from Tijuana, these sobreruedas are known in other parts of Mexico as Tianguis.
