If you want to purchase Peruvian art or souvenirs on a range from cheap and small to large and high quality..... you will NOT leave this place without just what you were looking for and more.

The prices were reasonable, but most things you can bargain a bit, especially if you are buying a few things. The quality of items range, and the prices likely range depending on your ability and desire to bargain, but amazing displays of incredible Peruvian talent (and also some displays of chinsy foreign made things that sneak in there too, so be aware). But the sales people at each stall know their products well, and are happy to be honest if given the chance, that one item is lower quality than another.

Many spoke English quite well, and seemed happy to use those skills for explaining and negotiating when possible.

I felt very safe as a single female alone.... of course there is a fair amount of vendors working hard to get your attention and hoping you will buy from them. Some pressure, but not excessive.

Cash certainly recommended (and clearly preferred by the vendors who also might give you a deal if you pay with cash instead), but many were able to accept a card.

It really depends how much you like looking at things, but you could spend hours upon hours.... or you could browse quickly and move along. But worth it just for the experience even if you don't have a wish list of things to buy (almost like a free arts/crafts museum).

If you're going to be in Miraflores anyway then I would say you should stop in - if you need some tourist stuff like hats with alpacas on them. It is 100% tourist market which is great, everyone needs a souvenir but I wouldn't make a special trip. Downtown off the Plaza de Armas has the same merchandise and I think the prices are a bit better.

We walked around the market on a Saturday, surprised that there were so few shoppers. Many of the vendors sold similar items for similar prices. We bougt a few things, but overall found the Indian Market across the street to have higher quality items (sweaters, shawls,etc) though higher prices. There was also more diversity at the Indian market.

Inca Market is a fun spot to look for gifts. It is a mix of cheap, tourist items and quality Peruvian crafts. Negotiate prices and you can get a fair deal. You'll find nearly everything you could want, particularly t- shirts, purses, sweaters and scarves.

Many beautiful things at this market if you are looking for mementos to take home. Table linens, baskets, wooden ware made from olive wood, jewelry, etc. I thought the prices fair, you can always bargain. Salespeople not pushy, and all had a friendly Hola. Fun!

Souvenirs, cheap, inexpensive, and a vast variety. Each shop appears to carry the same blankets and chotches, yet each have some level of individuality.

Amazing how fast the prices will drop, 65 to 50 sol at a blink of an eye. So don’t quickly accept the starting price.

Although there are great items, beware that most of the items are mass produced from China. I purchased a "Baby Alpaca" scarf and upon arriving home, I noticed the small tag that they probably forgot to remove that says, 100% polyester, made in China. I guess you get what you pay for. There is no way you can buy Baby Alpaca scarf at those prices.

I walked here from my hotel. I thought everything was reasonably priced. They had jewelry, lots of things made from Llama wool, purses, hats, t-shirts. Many of the places took Visa or American Express. I’ll be back.

Went to peru for a six day trip. After our first day sight seeing in lima we asked our tour guide where to go for gifts. He said go to the Inka market. He said it was cheaper but would still find some quality items. We looked at other Miraflores places and I will have to agree. Most of the stands are very similar but we liked Stand 18 the best. Elena is super nice and reasonable.

Hope your trip goes well.

You can walk about quietly or you can talk to people, the nicest thing about this market is I have NEVER experienced "push" sales people. Great selection (I got lost wandering around and trying to find a painter I had seen earlier) and reasonable quality. Haggle, have fun. There are places to rest, bottled drinks. Good venue for everyone, just keep tabs on people wandering off....
