Guatemala: $1.49 Million Food Market

A new 'Municipal Market' is to be built in Sibinal, San Marcos, in the west of the country, with the aim of supporting agricultural commerce.

Catalino Aguilar, Codede spokesperson, commented that, "the new market will encourage the purchase and sale of our products by providing an alternative to the current practice of setting up stalls in the street".
