We go here almost everyday for fresh food for our meals. Great prices, plus it is fun to gather everything from multiple sellers. Today we went to grab some tortillas, tomatoes, and peppers. The market was packed. Some overweight lady in an orange shirt keep getting in our way. I was intially angered that this rude lady had no respect... More

The big Handicraft Market in Antigua (the one that is 4 or 5 blocks west of the main plaza) is a great place to shop. There is an indoor section that is dedicated to just Mayan handiwork and has pretty much the same things I saw in Chichicastenango but in a more relaxed setting and all under one roof. I... More

I like to see tourists from all over the world. I also like the food in various restaurants. I loved the ruins and central park.

This market has a little bit of everything. It is especially good on Saturday. There is every type of vegetable and fruit imaginable. There are different sections of the market with shoes, clothing, fabric, grocery items, and tourist items. Especially nice is the Artisans Market just to the south in the gold colored buildings. It has items from all over... More

When you are in love everywhere is a romantic place, even the supermarket. Yolkobsens discovered what a fun park a supermarket can be when we fell in love in Antigua Guatemala. Sure we had been to all of the wonders and charms Antigua Guatemala had to offer, including a romantic and fun-filled frolic in the main and authentic market, many... More

We enjoyed strolling the street markets when we were not expected somewhere. Great way to spend the morning/afternoon. I didn't purchase anything because the prices were a bit high for my budget, but I saw lots of items in one place. It was like a mini Chichicastenango market.

It reminds me a bit of flea markets. you can get stationary, electronics, fruits, cooked foods, sweets, shoes, clothing etc. The market doesn't get fully setup until about 11am.

No need to take the 3-hour (each way) bus trip to the Chichicastenango market. In Antigua's west side (near the bus terminal, to the left) is the Mercado de Artesanias that is open every day. The Mercado de Artesania is a contrentration of over 100 colorful vendors/stalls selling souveniors, paintings, wood carvings, hand woven bags, jade/silver jewelry, ceramics, t-shirts, woven... More
