  • This is the place if you want variety and good prices, here are many sales outlets are all crafts and clothing typical Peruvian and the best at low prices, for example when I did the trip from Cuzco to Puno buy to my spouse some earrings that because it was the place where made silverware and were better prices buy them 10 Suns which in truth I thought it was very economical, but find that those same earrings at the craft Center were in 4 Suns... This so give you an idea of what you can save if you buy their things here.

  • crafts of different regions of peru. excellent quality and very good price. better than the centers of lima. don't forget you have to haggle and walk by newsstands. never buy by the asking price.

  • It's a tidy super market. It is all at very good prices. Important if you want something specific to look in several stands for ask the price going to who gives you a lower price and negotiate. Is super quiet and safe.

  • 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!
