San Ignacio Market

Amidst the bustling atmosphere, you’ll encounter a blend of languages – from German to English, Spanish to Creole, and Maya – spoken by vendors hailing from various backgrounds. Every Saturday, the market has farmers, artisans, and food vendors from surrounding villages showcasing their finest produce, handmade crafts, and delectable Belizean dishes. Visitors can explore aisles adorned with fruits, vegetables, and tropical plants alongside artisans selling intricately woven baskets, textiles, and jewellery. It is a great location to sit and enjoy local delicacies such as tamales, rice and beans, pupusas, and tacos. The San Ignacio Market is a wonderful cultural experience.
