    Fun to wander the stalls and shop for souvenirs to remember your Peruvian adventure. This was the most affordable and the most variety we found. Blankets and scarves galore!

    You can find tons of souvenir shops here, prices are lower than in the main plazas. You can negotiate better prices if paying by cash, although many stores accept credit cards

    Great place. Most of the handicraft you see everywhere are here but way cheaper. Asking for discount is a must!

    This is the place to haggle for your artesanías and "chumpers" 😂 We got the best price of the stalls around the outside. Food was a let down though

    This market is HUGE! If your looking for something specific, it's got to be somewhere in this market. Prices are decent, not expensive but not as cheap as the San Pedro market but they have far far more items to choose from. I loved shopping here!
