Busy January Farmers/Artisans’ Market at Ambergris Caye’s Truck Stop
Most of you know Ambergris Caye‘s famous hot spot, The Truck Stop – the food container park, beer garden, live music venue, bar(s), pool area, sunset dock, ice cream shop and more. It’s one of the busiest spots on the island and monthly, they host a Farmers & Artisan Market. It’s usually the 3rd Saturday of the month and always lots of fun.
But let me get right to my pictures of this month’s busy market.
The parking lot was full…
People ordering food from the Asian, Mexican, Pizza and ice cream restaurant trucks.
I was tempted to grab a pizza to go. But me at home, alone with a fresh warm Conch Pizza would be dangerous. Conch, garlic, red pepper flakes…soooo good.
I headed towards the market…passing the games area.
The old pick-up truck garden…
And the sunset viewing/dining area.
This sign needs an update. As of about a month ago, we DO have a hospital on the island. (Thank GOODNESS!)
To the market!
And Brooklyn Brothers Bagels – where I ordered one of my best bites of December 2023.
Mito Paz is an incredible resource of history for San Pedro. If you see this book, buy one. The pictures are great…you’ll learn a ton about San Pedro.
Truck Stop has 6 flavors of Two-5 craft beer on tap as well…yesterday the menu included Pina Pale Ale, Soursop Hazy, Fever Grass Witbier and Rum Popo Stout. Beer doesn’t get more Belizean than that.
And then my friend Sophie from IslandartBelize. I have a number of her paintings…I love the pretty colors and the shapes…I want a parrot next!
That’s all until next month! For more information on The Truck Stop, you can check out their website, read the dozen or more posts I’ve written about them over the years…or just stop by 🙂
