What's not to like about the market? The mix of people, the vibe of a Saturday community get-together, the girls in nice dresses looking good, the little girls and boys helping their mamas, the occasional music, men enjoying a small luxury of a shoe shine, fresh fruit and vegetables (please, senora, I'd like ten of the small bananas for a...

We have been to many markets in Belize and this one was by far the best. The vendors take pride in their presentation and there is plenty of room to move from one booth to the next.

The San Ignacio Market was a lot of fun. All the people selling food are very nice and give you good deals. It gives a good insight into the culture of Belize.

The was 4 years ago that I was there. We went to the market while staying there to check it out since the locals told us how great it was. We were not disappointed at all, wow what a market. The smells, the variety of merchandise and fruits and veggies. Great food to eat there. So much to buy here... More

we avoided the weekend tourists when the market is busy - and went instead on a weekday afternoon to stock up on fruits and veggies . Great selection - from arugula to radishes......

Very large market, go on a Saturday well worth the visit. You can buy shoes, clothes, fresh fruit and vegtables. There are stalls with any type of food you would like to eat

Kind of interesting to see the local culture, and some local produce. They also had some local crafts, but nothing of exceptional quality. And you can find these same things elsewhere. I wouldn't go out of your way to go.

This is closed for the most time (during the holidays) and when it opened, it was nothing but a farmers market. Nothing to do unless you want to walk around lazing...
