Visit the market on Saturday when it is best. The market on Saturday is comprised of a flea market more on the road area. In the other area is a large area of fresh fruit and vegetables. Unbelieveable!!!! We also found someone selling fresh snapper....More

The best part of the San Ignacio market is that it's not done for tourists. The locals come out on Saturday for the big market day to buy their produce & groceries and, apparently, socialize. The town is bustling, and we saw many fruits that...More

A lovely market filled with a variety of items. Each booth was well placed with plenty of space between them. Locals were friendly and not intrusive. I'll revisit before I leave to try some local food.

There was not as much fruits and veggies. Every thing was over priced, including food and souvenirs. Won't be going back.

Loved the localness of this market. Try El Fogon in the back for breakfast! Many things you can not take back with you - fruits etc. but some nice craft and Mayan vendors - much cheaper than in stores and you are buying direct.

This is really fun for some local and touristy flair at the same time. This happens almost all day on Saturday and you can find all the produce you could ask for, as well as souvenirs if you're looking for that. It's also a fun...More

This was my favorite place in San Ignacio. I walked around and ate food for 2 hours. There were some amazing jewelry deals to be had too!

We came here on a Friday afternoon later in the day, so that may be the reason we found the results that we did. The market was probably two thirds full with vendors. 90% of the vendors were selling fresh produce similar to a farmers...More

Atmosphere, all wares, produce, and freshly prepared foods are all very, very good and very, very local. Really enjoyed everything and the time spent here. No tourist junk, just local stuff meant for the locals. Very cool.

No, it is at least an hour away. And, frankly, it is not worth the hour drive. The San Ignacio market is really more of a shopping spot for locals, with lots of fresh produce. The clothing I saw was made in China and... More
