There are so many local markets in Cuzco or around, but for me this is the best specially on Sunday with local Quechua people from all over the Sacred Valley descend in Pisac to sell an amazing variety of fruit, vegetable, potatoes, corn and grains....More

This is a local market, not a super market!..So be prepared to see food, fruits, vegetables and souvenirs in its purest form!...And yes, there are flies, however get used to it and enjoy the experience!...Enjoy and mingle and haggle when you buy your favorite souvenirs!

We were taken here by a tour company, and to a very specific shop, no big surprise. I felt sort of pushed through, if that's a thing. There is nothing particularly unique being sold here, so it's really not worth the stop, if you ask...More

We enjoyed wandering through this market. This is mainly a food market for locals (fruit, vegetables spices, live animals etc.) and there are some woven products that I suspect are aimed at the tourist trade. Lively and bustling, you can mingle with the locals and...More

It was cute little market but my experience was just so so. I really wasn't interested in the artwork so many vendors were selling. There are better options for souvenir shopping in Machu Picchu or Cusco. You can however give a few soles to kids...More

Way overpriced for what they sell. Every stall has the same thing. Nice if you want to get a few presents/have the money to spend. Other wise I'd give it a miss, although the surrounding valley is very pretty and the views are really nice.

We have bought most of our gifts from this market, all locally made and great prices. You can watch the ladies weave their goods, but some market holders can be a little pushy but no worse than other countries

A vast market, predominantly aimed at the tourist, but equally interesting for its non- touristy side. However Check dates before you visit as the main market is not everyday of week.

Com is run back and forth on AC San Martin stepping in Pisac. Cost is negligible and the ride is fun. The Sunday market has good buys on Peruvian goods, much cheaper than you'd pay in Cusco. As an added bonus you can climb up...More

Definitely the one Pisac which also is probably the least expensive

Hi! We are visiting Peru in April 2017 and are wondering (1) if the Pisac market will be opened on Easter Sunday? It's the only Sunday we can visit as we are only there a couple days (Sunday April 16th, 2017). Anyone knows for sure? (2) what is the easiest/most reliable way to make it to the Pisac market on your own from Cusco?
