Country: Guatemala   /   Village: Santa Maria de Jesus
Ethnic Group: Maya   /   Feature: Markets


The fertile volcanic soil yields a great variety of produce. The four vendors have nearly a dozen different items among them including cucumbers, cabbage, potatoes, tomatoes, peanuts, bell peppers, tomatillos, bananas and corn. Noticeably absent is any source of protein. It is the most glaring deficiency in the villagers' diet.
