A nice market full of all the kinds of things you may want to bring home after a trip to Peru. We had visited a few markets and this was the one where we found a nice carved lama to bring home with us.

You're bound to find something here you saw somewhere else and be able to decide that you finally want it. Be prepared to walk around and build rapport with the store owners, because you will find that prices can fluctuate and the better the rapport...More

This is a giant local market with food and local handmade and commercial goods. It is a great place to shop for souvenirs or get something to eat. People are friendly, helpful and not pushy. Everything is very cheap compared to the US. We had...More

This market has lots of wool and aplacan souvenirs. There is lots of places stocking the same but there are some unusual items if you look around. It's a great place to get something for those back home. It has good clean toilets for 1...More

This indoor mall is full of little shops selling all sorts of typical Peruvian woven goods. Many are no doubt made from genuine alpaca wool, but many are also made from acrylic—there's no way to tell unless you're an expert. There are also some restaurants...More

Our hotel recommended we visit this market to buy some souvenirs. Most of the shops had the same thing we had seen everywhere else in town (prices were pretty much the same too). It's only worth the trip if you are already going this way.

Maybe we went on an off day, but the entire place was so depressing. Tiny little stalls selling exactly the same souvenir items fill this shelter like plaza. Each and every stall manned by owners or employees in various stages of sleep. You feel like...More
