Market Day at the San Ignacio Farmer’s Market is one of the most anticipated days of the week for local farmers, vendors and visitors. Although the market in San Ignacio is open every ... moreday of the week, Saturdays are the locally designated day as “market day.” In just one location, all walks of Belizean life come together to trade and sell their fresh produce or goods.

The market is located in downtown San Ignacio on the bank of the Macal river. The location of the market square is quite small; and, on a regular day, the place can be seen barren. On Saturdays, however, stalls and tents are set up at every corner of the space and the walkways are littered with people running their weekly market errands or witnessing our special market for the first time.
