Mixed Vegetables at El Mercado Farmers’ Market in Antigua, Guatemala

Fifty percent of Guatemalans work in agriculture. They primarily grow coffee followed by bananas for export. The local farmers also grow fresh fruit and vegetables to generate income at local markets such as El Mercado, the main farmers’ market in Antigua. The wooden box holds varieties of sapote fruit. They are native to Central America and Mexico. Inside is an orange flesh surrounding a large seed. Behind them are watermelons. Guatemala is among the largest exporters of melons in the world.
