On our free day in Cusco, we finally figured out where this market was. We went around 11:30 and there weren't tons of people which was nice. There were many vendors selling all kinds of things and the prices were decent. You can haggle for...More

Our hotel recommended we visit this market to buy some souvenirs. Most of the shops had the same thing we had seen everywhere else in town (prices were pretty much the same too). It's only worth the trip if you are already going this way.

Disclaimer: I didn't go to San Pedro market but I really liked what I saw here in Centro Artesanal. You'll see it at the end of Avenida del Sol, after walking about 4 blocks. And it's near local restaurants too (like Gustos y Sabores in...More

I have no idea why San Pedro market is so popular when this better market is so close in distance. It's much quieter here and the deals you can get are significantly greater than ANYTHING you can get at San Pedro. I'd highly recommend trying...More
