Worth visiting not just inside the market, but also the streets surrounding it. Lots to looks at, food, clothes, arts, crafts, juices. I bought some small wooden spoons off a really friendly lady, and also bought a Peru football shirt from another stall. Always worth...More

From food and drink to cheese, pan and spices, this market has something for everyone. The locals and tourists shop there and you can see people from all walks of life. Have a drink and people watch

We went here a couple times. They sell local crafts, street food and groceries (fruit, meat etc). Great place to see locals and purchase gifts to bring home. Yes they will bargain for sure. Loved it.

This market is just a few blocks from the main square. Not only do they have everything a tourist would want but you get to see some of the produce and goods unique to the area. Some things you will not see anywhere else.

Went on the recommendation from the 3 days in Cusco guide. Flea market for locals, with knockoffs of international products. No local charm whatsoever.
