Market Day, Guatemala by Lisa Kristine

Market Day, Guatemala

Twice a week the colourful Mayans,  bundles of goods on their backs, stream down the cobblestone streets to the center square of Chichicastanengo where the largest indigenous market continues to take place. In the evening, the area is filled with families cooking supper and setting up camp for the night. Early in the morning, the normally calm square becomes a beehive of stalls buzzing with merchants and their trade: traditional textiles, utensils, tools, dry goods, vegetables, meats, flowers. One attendee, the elder in this photograph, exemplifies the true, quiet kindness and strong tradition the Mayans behold which, despite the repression historically placed on them, still remains intact.
