This paper tested the importance of the Sunday market in 1940 Guatemala, and found it to be consistent with findings in other Latin American settings. Temporal spacing of markets was maximized as expected. A central place explanation of market location was found to be most applicable to the more populous regions. Evidence from the more isolated markets indicated that rather than a Christallerian system that minimizes consumer transport costs, early market development actually proceeds from a growth centre that dominates a large area.-from Author Dept Geog, Ohio State Univ, U.S.A.
