Saying Chichicastenango is the exact same as saying MARKET. With capital letters. Many years ago, the people of the villages undertook long walks around with the goods on their backs, tireless, heading to Chichicastenango. It was-and is-one of the largest indigenous markets throughout Guatemala and certainly the most famous. Some came casting a blanket on the floor, preparing something to eat and waiting for market day. On Thursdays and Sundays, early in the morning, all sellers arrange their vegetables, fruits, blankets, food utensils, handicrafts, ceramics ... Anything can be sold here ... Yes, you should haggle a lot.
