Local market with a mix of local foods as well as sections for the tourist. The local vegetables and meats are sold, as would be expected, in the open. If you feel adventurous, I would probably stay away from the meats, we didn't see any thing resembling refrigeration. Good place to get the local giant corn with cheese.

So many vendors with such a great variety of things to see and buy. Fun to negotiate and learn more about the Andean culture here - highly recommended

This is a rather belated review. I shopped for jewelry at Adriana Workshop in March 2013. TA forced me to choose a date, and the earliest choice was April 2016 (what's with that?). They had a large selection of high quality jewelry, mostly silver, some gold. I'm only giving the Market 4 stars as we didn't stay there long enough... More

If you visit Cusco, you should see Pisac market. It is colorful, enjoyable while you are shopping. People are very kind, shy. Some of them may demand few money as you photograph them.

So many stalls, easily spent an hour here and didn't get through everything. Very touristy and some of the best prices on goods. Open to bartering if u enjoy that. Very repetitive like most tourist markets but a fun hour or two.

This huge market seems to have endless shops and street vendors crowded into narrow streets and alleys. It's fascinating, but probably only exists for tourists.

We visited the Pisac Market on our way to Ollantaytambo and Machu Pichu and found it to be worth a visit, but only if one is in the area. I wouldn't recommend making a special trip to Pisac just for the market. It is fairly large given the small size of the town of Pisac. Most of the "usual" tourist... More

We are not into souvenirs - BUT - this beautiful market is all about colors and smells and sounds. It is a terrific place to just wander around and take pictures. Beautiful artworks abound. Another reviewer suggested hours here, but we spent 30 minutes and it was perfect. Take off the main path and get back into some of the... More

Beautiful and colorful market where you can find all kind of sweaters, hats, souvenirs, ponchos and a lot more to take back home. You can get lost there taking amazing pictures. If you are planning to go, i suggest you to ask your driver or tour guide to plan in advance few hours there. It is worth it!

Pisac Market is touristy but worth seeing! The colors and variety of the crafts are amazing! Loved the cobblestone roads! Be careful of taking pictures of the locals they do want you to pay them for the picture.
