This market should not be missed - particularly the days where they have the most vendors out (I think that is Fri/Sat). We went to the market on a Saturday and I was in total heaven - there are local vendors selling produce, arts and crafts, trinkets, souvenirs and street food. Hands down one of the best things I have... 更多
We visited the market at noon on Saturday. There were rows and rows of fruits and dried goods. Nothing spectacular, but lots of good people watching.
We spent our first day in the Cayo walking around the shops and market in San Ignacio. This is a great market that is frequented by locals and has many different people manning their stalls. Mennonites, locals, Guatemalans and even ex-pats. There is a great store on the walled side of the market run by a local lady, that has... 更多
The Belizean we stayed with told us that the full San Ignacio Market was open Tuesday, Friday, and Saturday morning, with Saturdays being the biggest day. It is within walking distance from downtown San Ignacio and is next to the wood bridge that crosses the river. Some of the vendors start packing up after lunch time, so it's best to... 更多
The San Ignacio market is not one to miss if you happen to be in San Ignacio.. especially on a Saturday! It's quieter during the week days, but Saturday it's booming... there are people everywhere.. and colors and sounds and smells. You can get an enormous variety of fresh fruits and vegetables (although note that Dragon Fruit is not in... 更多
This open air market it awesome! I always heard that the San Ignacio area is the bread basket of Belize. Judging by this market its true! So many booths from large professional types to locals selling their goods out of the back of a pick up truck. Most vendors have the same goods & prices so it's hard to figure... 更多
It's fun just to walk through but even better to negotiate and buy some fresh fruit or hot food from a vendor. Locals were very pleasant and curious, but not too pushy. You can eat here for cheap compared to the restaurants in town. Worth the walk or taxi ride to explore if you have the time.
If you are looking for some delicious breakfast or lunch, look no further. Local vendors offer quesadillas, burritos, papusas, and tamales for a steal (my boyfriend and I were stuffed for 3 BZD which is $1.50 US). We also bought an array of fresh veggies and fruits for the week. For a special treat buy the local Mennonite cheese!
