This market consists of approximately 35 stands where you can buy a wide range of Guatemalan handicrafts, including textiles, ceramics and jewellery. Products are made of wood, leather and natural fibres. Also try ice creams, sweets and traditional dishes. The market constitutes a colourful and pleasant preview of what you can obtain in the rest of the country, especially in the towns of the Altiplano. The market opened to the public in 1974, with hopes of preserving and promoting the traditional craft industry. The recently refurbished facility now has a pleasant garden, fountains and corridors, and a restaurant (open: 11a-11p M-Th, 11a-midnight F-Sa, 11a-9p Sun). Admission to the market is free. Parking facilities are available.
- Open Hours: Monday to Saturday from 08:00 AM to 06:00 PM, Sunday from 08:00 AM to 01:00 PM
