We stopped by the San Ignacio Market on Friday afternoon to pick up some produce for some of our group who were camping. The vegetables and fruit looked very fresh and I think prices were good. It wasn't busy, but I believe that the mornings and Saturdays are the busy times and that would have been interesting to see. If... More

Just when you enter town and across the river on your left you can see a small (mostly for local consumption). I would recommend to buy fruits and spices there. At lunch they have a lot of home-made food.

We go regularly to this market. It is unparalleled in all of Belize, with maybe the Belmopan market on Fridays coming close. You will find fruits and vegetables that are in season, as well as a few imported apples, mushrooms and sweet corn. After 10:00 am, all the good deals as well as the freshest produce is gone. The sellers... More

I loved the Saturday market. There were a lot of merchants and vendors. It was an opportunity to see what and where the locals bought and sold foods. There were also many touristy type merchants with hand made items. We met one artist who worked in wood, who had very nice items for reasonable prices. This market was the first... More

Though Saturday is the big day, we went there during the week as well. Lots of fruit and vegetables. Some cloths and trinkets. Worth a stop if you are in town.

It's a cute, little market. Well laid out. Easy to get into and out of. There are enough vendors to give a little variety.

Just before visiting Placencia this was a must stop. Every culture is there in that lives in Belize. The colorful fruits and veges all organic and the spices are the best belizeans spices I've discovered. I must say its one of the best markets in the entire country. Artisian jewelry for about $5 usd and good food. Love it!

We spent a Saturday morning ambling around this market. Lots of fresh fruit, fresh vegetables, food vendors, one place with sprouts, and also did find one stand with fresh cheese, fresh yoghurt, fresh bread, fresh butter, and good stuff like that. There needs to be more stands like this I think. Spent some time talking to the vendors and just... More

Saturday is market day for everyone and we loved shopping for fresh fruits, hot sauces, ice cream, and souvenirs. Nice and crowded with families doing their weekly shopping, tourist browsing, and farmers displaying a multitude of fresh and healthy produce.

Our first afternoon in San Ignacio just happened to be a Saturday and the market was in full swing by the time we got out of our hotel and down to the centre of town. It's a really friendly place with plenty of stalls selling all sorts from souvenir merchandise to clothes through to food and plenty of fruit and... More
