Artesania Market - Market Antigua - Guatemala

Next to the Central Market, the Artesania Market is a low-key, relaxed shopping experience. Over two hundred stalls sell a wide variety of traditional and modern crafts encompassing huipiles, scarves, glassware, paintings, sandals and candles. Shady and cool, shoppers can browse amongst the glorious array of handicrafts at their leisure. Despite appearances, all are handmade; watch out instead for poorer quality thread and dyes. Friendly bartering can lower prices by as much as half. Facilities on site: benches, ATM, toilets ($0.25).
