The market is walking distance from the main square and full of energy, bright colors and lots of little shops. This market offers rows of fresh fruit juice vendors, shops full of scarfs, bags, knick knacks....etc. and in the back, food stalls, fruit/veggie vendors, grain...More

This market is massive and probably the best one in all of Cusco. You can taste authentic style street foods, get fresh produce, find some gifts to take home or even buy some San Pedro if you want to do some self exploration! 😉 You...More

Lots of souvenirs. Great prices. Many grisly unidentified and identified...More

Great traditional market divided in 2 parts. North sections sell fabric, clothing articles, crafts and souvenirs.. where the south side offers all variety of local specialty food at unbeatable prices. I highly recommend the ceviches..

This a great pit stop to get your souvenirs. It’s also a great place to experience the people of Cusco. It’s full of all sorts of vendors ranging from textiles to fruit to cow heads. Definitely worth the visit.

Although this market is more touristic than the other market close by, also locals buy their goods here. But it had many souvenirs stands. We were looking for two specific souvenirs, which we couldn’t find elsewhere, but found it here. And although people warned us...More

The local currency is Peruvian soles. You should change many in the central Plaza de Armas. The airports tend to overcharge!
