Not just an average market or tour. Built by a Guatemalan dictator to give back to the community, this market is a maze! We want to make sure you see the best it has to offer, including the locals only cafeteria area sheltered within. If it’s good enough for locals…
While open every day and of course you can go by yourself, we’ve chosen this day due to specific fresh produce vendors only available this day of the week, which are a great opportunity to both taste and to photograph..
We’ll even visit parts of the market which are not readily accessible to the public, going behind the scenes for a rare chance to get up close to the colourful Chicken buses hidden behind the market, all lined up for you to easily view (and not choke on the fumes!).
Our Antiguan (but fluent in English) guides may have been born here, but are licensed for the whole of Guatemala and offer a huge wealth of historical knowledge to share with you, so feel free to have your questions at the ready.
At the end, you’ll no doubt have full shopping bags. We can take a break in the local square and snack on the tostadas & guacamole fresh from the market (which are on us). And if anyone wants to put the produce and their cooking skills to the test for dinner that evening at theirs, then who are we to argue with the chef?
