“Fun”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2014

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. One local, one tourist. I kept my backpack on my front side while in the market.

“Local fun for any age!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2014

We went on a Saturday, and there are so many things to see it was fun to take it all in. We especially enjoyed getting lots of fresh fruits and veggies...the kids really liked the small red plums from the farm vendors, and the hand-shaved snow cones were a treat they won't soon forget!

“Great market”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2014

We were fortunate to visit on a Saturday and Monday. The Saturday market was huge with an array of vendors - touristy stalls, fruit & veg, fresh coconuts, street food stands. The prices were excellent, especially when compared to what is charged on Ambergris Caye. Did most of our gift shopping here. The Monday market was tiny by comparison with only 1 tourist stall. The taxi stand is right next to the market, very convenient for getting your shopping home. The open air butcher shops were quite fascinating.
