Women Shopping at El Mercado Farmers’ Market in Antigua, Guatemala

On the west side of town is the farmers’ market called El Mercado. The front stalls have clothing and souvenirs for tourists. Keep walking into the bustling maze. Each step reveals more traditional and rustic displays of fruit, vegetables and flowers. You can also purchase fish, meat and pirated DVDs. Many vendors are inside a rudimentary concrete building. Others are crowded together outside. This scene of Guatemalan women haggling over the price of produce is typical. The market is open on Monday, Thursday and Saturday.
