This is a great market and it is packed with fresh veggies and meats. Also the french bakery has relocated directly across the street from the market. It is best to go early for the nicest selection. This time i got green onions that were 21/2 foot tall YUMMY AND GARGANTUAN carrots. A must see in San Ignacio

I am careful about what I eat in other countries - but you will find a little old lady cooking what looks to be "waffles" in some kind of waffle iron. These little treats are AWESOME! You don't want to pass these up - you can a pack of 4 for about a USD. If you are like me -... More

It was fun, but a lot of the same stuff. Cool to check out San Ignacio though. We went on Saturday, the day of the Market. Try the coconut water!

I visited San Ignacio for two days and went to the market on my last day. There were a lot of vendors selling not just fruits and meats but also the typical "souvenirs" shops, honey and natural herbs, and baked goods. I was able to get some snacks for traveling in addition to tea. For me it was a lot... More

We had fun at this market, but it was a quick attraction. We ended up walking around town which was nice. The market was small and we did have fun. Also on our way back to the hotel we went to the Iguana Project.

We last went to the San Ignacio Market Day in May 2008. Six years later it has grown tremendoulsy! Fruit, spices, carvings, textiles, baskets, you name it, the market has it. For just a few dollars you can pick up a great picnic lunch. If we thought we could have gotten the spices through U.S. Customs, we would have filled... More

We canoed down from Chaa Creek on Saturday. We previously stayed in SI and had been to the market prior. But Saturday is a whole new world. It's almost like a swap meet on one half. Seems like the locals buy their clothes here as well as fruits/veggies. Be aware that two people were pick pocketed while we were there.... More
