Police intervened to free Mayor Jorge Luis Escandón Hernández, who reportedly suffered no major injuries.
It was the second attack by farmers demanding that he fulfil his campaign promise to repair a local road.
Extra officers have been deployed to the village in Chiapas state.
Mayors and local politicians in Mexico are often targeted by drug gangs when they refuse to cooperate with their criminal schemes but it is less common for them to be attacked over their campaign promises.
