The market is full of open-air stalls, some more enclosed / store-front like than others. There are hundreds of vendors selling a variety of wares - textiles (blankets, bags, scarves, ponchos, capes, etc.), painted works, jewelry, silverwares, traditional touristy items (magnets, T-shirts, mugs, and key-chains), wood products (furniture, trays, stools, etc.), and a few food vendors. Definitely haggle / negotiate, first price is usually a significantly higher mark-up. Some vendors are less likely to negotiate than others, especially if they know you're a foreigner (or don't speak much Spanish). Definitely shop around and comparison price. There's lots of neat items to find and see. Very rarely will you find a truly unique item, lots of vendors have similar items, so if you don't love it at the first place you see - shop around and you'll probably find it somewhere else.

I usually visit this market to get souvenirs fro friends who live abroad or when I want an Alpaca sweater or a fine scarf. There is a gret variety of options and the prices are incredibly low considering the time spent in making handicrafts and other articles.

A wide variety of Peruvian crafts can be found here - beautiful sweaters and blankets from alpaca wool, silver jewelry - modern styles or with Peruvian themes, backpacks, totes, purses. There are lots of booths so you are sure to find something for everyone there. For the best bargaining power, have cash on hand, either soles or American dollars will work. And when you run out of cash, most take credit cards as well.

For the shopping activities in your to do list, this is the place to go. There are many shopping areas in the immediate neighborhood from artesanias, magnets, souvenirs, alpacas, paintings, jewelries, clothing, shawls, bags, blankets, placemats, and all conceivable to the imagination. Prices are competitive since all the vendors are competing for your dollars. I bought some blankets and kitchen gadgets here. Their operating hours stay open well into late night around 11 pm on weeknights. We walked here from Diez Canseco and Alconfores and it was about ten minutes.
