The San Ignacio Market is a great place to go to chat with locals. The market was filled with fresh veggies and fruits, and it actually ended up being the place we got our coolest and cheapest souvenirs from.

Although it was a weekday, the shops were there at 7am, all the fruit stalls were there, clothing and a few handicraft were only opening/ setting up. If you're looking for fresh fruits, a local market ambiance, go have a look!

Fresh fruits and vegetables. Great when staying and cooking at a hostel with a kitchenette. Plenty of fresh homemade ice cream.

If you need any fresh fruit or vegetables this is the place. All the produce is brought here from the local Cayo farmers and Mennonites. On the side of the market some locals were selling melons from the back of their vehicles. It is very...More

We stayed just outside San Ignacio for a couple of days so had occasion to visit this hustling, bustling market on a couple of occasions. It's a kaleidoscope of colours and a feast for the senses! Noisy and chaotic but it's a good way to...More

Yes, the fruit & veggies are there everyday during the week. On saturdays it's more of a swap meet with clothes & household items. All the booths have pretty much the same stuff. We buy at Balognas they have organic. It's... More

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
