Market place and bus terminal all in one! Visited by locals and foreigners, it’s the perfect place to find all kinds of fresh fruit and vegetables amongst other things. And if you feel like a trip after shopping you can take a chicken bus from here to any spot in Guatemala!

La Democracia Market

There are several mercados, street markets, in Xela, short nickname for Quetzaltenango. One of them is in La Democracia in zone 3. I like this one best. Because it is relatively cheaper than central market. There are more options. They are fresher. And apart from the vegetable market, there is also a bazaar where I can find other things, including clothing. It is one of my favorite places to visit when I have some extra time to kill or need to buy something. I like its liveliness.
