This is a must stop if you have a time.... We went as part of a tour of the area and I'm very glad we did...
You cant imagine the beauty of the fresh fruits, vegetables, and flowers.... The great smells coming from the cooking (we didnt, of course, eat there), the chatter of the locals...
GREAT place for pictures... when photographing the sellers - offer them a few coins to take their picture and a picture of their wares..
You can also get some great coffee to take home, too!

You'll be amazed at this experience! Especially on Urubamba's weekly market day, when people come from all over in their colorful outfits and hats to sell their animals , food, and handmade good. My wife and I were fortunate that our guide went out of his way to take us there before hiking the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu.

We visited the market on a Wednesday. This is a large market that is divided by product type. Great selections of fruits and veggies. The flowers were abundant and so colorful. All around a great place to walk around and experience .

In August of the year 2019 I had the opportunity to visit the urubamba market, a magical and picturesque place, the pets next to their owners, sale of fish, meat, fruits, all-tasted breads and form a great experience.

We decided to venture in to this market after reading good reviews. We had no idea the variety of fruit, vegetables, meat, and flowers we saw. We stopped at a great jugateria and had fresh orange pineapple juice which was amazing. Definitely a must see while you are here!!

We visited the market at around 8 am in the morning. It appeared to us to be a bona fine local market that was paying very little attention to the tourists. This made it all the more interesting to explore. Many of the women were wearing traditional dress including traditional hats identifying their origin and it was good to see the variety of things on sale - including inevitably a bewildering variety of potatoes!

This market was amazing! Lovely people, out of this world pricing on fresh organic produce. The difference in taste was noticeably fresher and richer in colour. There was so much to see and take in. The locals were so friendly and helpful, not pushy like in other markets we've been to. The bread and cheese was fantastic, YOU have to go to this market if you're in Urubamba!

My Family and I have been living in Urubamba for the last few months and shop at this market frequently as do many of the local chefs. The selection is abundant but there are a few things that are impossible to find. Mushrooms for instance. I did find leeks the other day though. My Spanish/English/Charades usually can get me by but sometimes the barrier stops me short. I recommend getting your cheese from the nuns on Marisol Castilla rather than the mercado and the meat...well at your own risk.

We visited the Marcado de Urubamba short after our arrival in Cusco and we were really fascinated from all the colours, the people, the variety of potatoes and maize. In principle you have many fantastic motifs to take pictures, but unfortunately the light is somewhat difficult as the market covered with blue plastic/linen. However, in my opinion a must see.
