The market in Chichicastenango, reputedly the largest outdoor market in Central America, attracts buyers and sellers from near and far every Thursday and Sunday. Originally the market was frequented only by the indigenous population of the Quiche region, but its fames has reached all corners of Guatemala and beyond.
While everyday items for the local population still occupy the largest part of the market, many great souvenirs can be found here — from colorful Mayan fabrics and ceremonial masks to genuine leather goods, jewelry and accessories.
