Weekly market in Antigua, Guatemala. July, 2008.

Astonishing variety of food items offered on this market is not reflected in the  daily diet of the Maya.  Unfortunatelly, these products are usually too expensive for the local population. In Antigua, that became a magnet for Americans eager to learn Spanish, quality vegetables and fruits are sold mostly to restaurant chefs and tourists. In the mean time, one of the main problems in Guatemala remains malnutrition.
