Flea Market Shopping
Wander through Centro Artesanal Santa Lucia, a city street market specializing in handcrafted local items and souvenirs. This central market opens all day and sits just opposite Cerro Santa Lucia Park. The stalls radiate with bold bright colours and items hang chaotically on display. Shade cloths and an abundance of tall plants on the walkways provide for a pleasant shopping environment. Typical items include leather goods, woollen clothing, jewellery, shoes, and items made of copper. Don't expect to barter too much as the prices are fixed. Some stalls accept different currencies. A visit to Centro Artesanal Santa Lucia represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Santiago itinerary planner to plot your vacation.

  • To buy souvenirs, is the best place! And if you haggle, certainly have good discounts.

  • Chilean crafts there is little... all Chinese... souvenir at good price but nothing that highlight culture or lintels for a European traveler. The clothes are bad quality alpaca wool, and pencil lazuli which is of poor quality but at least affordable. It is not a Chilean crafts fair... is rather of South American immigrants...

  • The site has very easy access by subway. There are many items to be purchased for this and for yourself. Wool, copper items and crafts in General. I recommend at least a visit. It is also the cheapest place.

  • Perfect place for picking up gift items.. nice place ..many shops and price also reasonable..l spend around 1 and half hrs and it was very good
  • Good place for souvenirs. We have bought shoes from one of the vendors on three different trips and my wife is always being asked where she got them. They are very unique to Chile.
  • Little stores with no English and pushy service (buy buy buy) Be careful you can be ripped off from vendors. They will give you FAKE BILLS! Unacceptable!
  • Great prices for local handicrafts, especially knit alpaca goods and copper & Lapis Lazuli jewelry
  • I think it's expensive, although I understand owners take advantage since it's a touristic place. Right in front of Cerro Santa Lucía. Good place for souvenirs, handmade clothes and other stuff...
