You can get just about anything here, from produce, to puppies, chickens, meat, fish, crafts and well, junk... You won't find many exceptional hand crafted pieces of art, etc. if that is what you are looking for, it is more touristy stuff, although there are a few gems. More high end items are found at somewhere like Orange Gifts a... More

It's a farmers' market - what else can I say? It very busy. Limited parking is available. The streets are one-way so if you drive past it by mistake, you will need to drive around, exit the area through the nearby bridge and loop back. We came here after our trek up Xunantunich (a 2 hour drive from our resort... More

We went here one Saturday morning. They sell mostly fresh fruits and veggies, but also clothes, souvenirs (like wooden handicrafts or jewlery). There are some stalls where they sell traditional food (like quesadillas, tamales or pupusa). My son had a whole pupusa (it contained red beans, pork, tomato sauce and cheese, all in a thick corn tortilla), very tasty. The... More

If you are looking for something to do or see visit the San Ignacio Market on Saturday. If you want a parking spot relatively close you had better go early, if not plan on walking. It is a very well laid out market with all of the produce situated in the middle and there is a varied selection at a... More

If you want to see the biggest open air market in Belize, then stop by the market on a Saturday. There's a little food court set up too. You can find tons of veggie and fruits, great, and inexpensive wines, and just about everything under the sun. It can be very packed if it's early, and it can get quite... More

The market is quite near the visitors center. The food is affordable and tasty. Some days if the week the market shrinks and only the fruit stands are there but others there are plenty of food vendors.

Lots of locals selling food items with some very strange things from the jungle. Great color for the camera buff and some good eating.
