Colorful kiosks of hanging bananas, fresh stacks of limes and lemons, and piles of peppers set the scene at San Ignacio Market. The market serves as a melting pot for Belize's many different cultures, including Mestizos, Mennonites, and Mayan peoples. Locals flock to the market early every Saturday morning to pick up the freshest produce for the week; you'll find plenty of fruits, vegetables, nuts, and some homemade crafts. You can often find kiosks selling hot snacks to munch on while you browse.
