Worth hunting out, because it's not very close to Plaza de Armas, this place is a real assault on the senses - variety, noise, colours, smells. Vegetable, fish, meat and clothes stalls are tumbled up against one another. The main market is housed in a...More

Mercado San Pedro is a huge metal covered market. In the darkness hundreds of vendors sell fruits, herbs, cheese, meat, fish, bread, clothes, fabric, toys ... We stopped for lunch at a little counter manned by Maria. La mamita prepared for us dishes with rice,...More

The whole area in which the market is located shows a very different side to Cusco than that experienced up in the main Plaza. This is where the locals hang out and shop. It is a great place to people watch and these markets are...More

This is an interesting conglomeration of a farmer's market, a baker's market, a craft market, street food stalls, butchering, and your standard tourist stuff. Most of the stalls are manned by older people who seem to be a little math challenged. You can bargain. Some...More

I love visiting these kinds of places. Unfortunately, the walking areas are unsafe. Where you walk between stalls, there are large craters, exposed rusty re-bar, make-shift plywood bridges and other hazards. If you go, be careful! If you do go, your senses will be rewarded....More

Like many Mercados in Latin America, this place is a must! You will find amazing food, exotic fruit, all kinds of tea and tons of crafts, way cheaper than at touristic shops. Don't miss to have "natas con pan y café" (cream of milk and...More

Yes, they do! They not only sell the live cactus, they also sell a powdered San Pedro. There were several vendors who sold it. :)
