Guatemala's Most Tranquil Market
If you're feeling a bit peckish on a Saturday in Antigua Guatemala, do your tastebuds and your eyes a favor and head straight for Cafe de la Fuente.
The graceful colonial courtyard setting of the restaurant makes it worth a stop pretty much any day of the week, but on Saturday, there's a special huipil market that adds a dazzling array of color to the scene. You can find huipiles, fajas (belts), tzutes (a sort of all-purpose cloth) and other Guatemalan textiles from pueblos all across the country. Bargaining is low-key and quiet, and you're almost guaranteed to find a treasure.
