El Mercado
Es uno de los mejores ejemplos de las estructuras del tipo “galeria y patio" localizadas en el sitio, en el crual los arquitectos mayas lograron avances constructivos como las bóvedas más anchas y las columnas más altas. Aunque no podemos señalar su función original, es evidente que está muy relacionada con la Plaza al frente, comunicada por una amplia escalinata. Cuenta con una larga galeria frontal con tres accesos hacia la plaza y uno al interior del patio hundido: cerca de este acceso se encuentra un altar con representaciones de personajes al bajorrelieve, y bordeando el patio se localizan columnas muy altas que sostuvieron un techo de material perecedero, con declive hacia el patio hundido, drenado por un canal de piedra labrada. Corresponde al estilo Maya-Tolteca (900-1200 d.C.).

Maya-Yucateco:

The Market
This is one of the best examples of the "Gallery and Courtyard” type found at the site. Here Mayan architects made significant construction advances, as in making wider vaultings and taller columns. Although its original use cannot be properly identified, it is obvious that it was closely related to the Plaza in front, to which it is connected by a large stairway. It has a long frontal gallery with three accesses towards the plaza and one to the interior of the sunken courtyard.

2. The Market Marker
The marker is at the base of the tree directly in front of the "market" steps.
Near this access there is an altar with basrelief representations of personages. Surrounding the courtyard are very tall columns which supported the roof, made of perishable materials and which sloped towards the sunken courtyard, which was drained by a cut stone canal. It was built in the Maya-Toltec style (900-1200 A.D.).
