    This market is a sign of a remarkable social harmony, live jobs from fish, meat, fruits of the region and indigenous handicrafts with buyers and tourists of different social classes and backgrounds, all in an interesting climate of respect.

    Warned in advance for pickpockets, but we felt very safe, yet keep so watch out! A market like no other sure the fruit portion. But look also certainly just according to the flesh, not always hygienic but especially impressive to sheep heads and the many types of potatoes. First run just above over the Gallery to get a good impression. Pictures may just be there.

    This market is one of those must-see places to meet the Peruvian town and its people, is very tidy, there is everything to buy and eat, I especially loved the juguerias, actually a few delicious juices

    It is a very colorful, orderly, clean market featuring the greatest array of fruit from all over, neatly arranged. Cheese, meats, flowers, typical dishes, and all sorts of stuff, surrounded by the sweet smell of sahumerio. My favorite market, a must see in Arequipa.

    Bustling historical market in Arequipa. Fresh fruit there is incredible with the choices of exotic fruit. Fresh home cheeses. Can find most things here.

    One of the more organised and clean markets you come across. The sit down food is upstairs and is quite the experience to have the ladies try to get you to pick them. The fruit juice section downstairs is great.

    A lot of different things to see and to learn. Varieties of corn, the unusual frog juice with egg, milk, maca, beer and some fruits was interesting to know. Some fruits such as the lucuma was also very cultural.

Where to stay in Arequipa

Most accommodations in Arequipa cluster on the east side of the Chili River. The historical center offers the best selection of options, with plenty of budget hostels and mid-range hotels scattered throughout its streets. For something quieter, look north to the neighborhoods of Zemanat and San Jacinto. If you're looking for a suburban experience, stay in the western neighborhood of Yanahuara.
