Started out early Saturday morning. Ate delicious tacos and stuffed fry jacks for breakfast. We got fresh soreil juice and tamarind juice, what a treat!
All the food was so inexpensive! There are several+ hot food venders. The vegetable and fruit venders go on and on! I did not see any old produce, it all looked newly harvested, and there was everything I had ever heard of and then some! Bought hand made souvenirs, NOT factory produced junk.
This was our second visit to this market.
I gave it 4 stars because there were not as many hand made items as the last time I visited. Perhaps that was due to being post holidays or still recovering from the Covid shut down? However, the San Ignacio market is a must-visit when in town, especially on Saturdays.

Great spot to stock up on fresh food, including fish. There are also many food vendors for a meal. Starts at 6 am. Many do not speak English.

Shopping for local groceries and overpriced souvenirs. Completely not worth the visit. Disappointed. Nothing special.

This place has dozens and dozens of vendors present. We were only able to go on a Sunday so it wasn’t nearly as busy as the prime days of Saturday and then Tuesday or Wednesday (ask your hotel staff what’s the second busiest day as we cannot recall exactly).

Plenty of produce vendors there daily as well as a make-shift food vendor selling pupusas (an El Salvadoran treat) and other Mesoamerican food. It was delicious and super cheap!

Definitely include this on your itinerary while in San Ignacio.

We went on a weekday so there were many booths closed. I think it would be much more lively on the weekend. There were booths with garage sale type clothes. I don't think we bought anything here, but I could see how it would be fun when fully opened.

This market is where the locals gather to sell their various products, fruits, vegetables, etc. We walked through it to purchase some oranges. The city is not a must see.

We stopped here on a weekday as it was very close to where we had eaten lunch. Most vendors were selling produce which looked very good although the vendors were largely selling the same products. There were also some vendors in a different area selling souvenirs and household goods.

Not a bad place to visit but pretty ordinary on a weekday. Note that Saturdays are much busier and might be more interesting.

First place saw us with a private guide and we paid over the odds for some bananas, next place was 1Bz for 8 excellent bananas which is amazing value.

Oranges were great too watermelon really lacks flavour.

Friendly stall owners who don’t hassle you so enjoyable 5 mins
