outside of the center
Sep 2017 • Friends
the mercado artisanal is a few kilometers outside the center, but it may be interesting, to walk across the road of Salta to see, how people are living.
The gifts and the exhibited goods have rather high quality. There was not much; so we had a lot of time, to look for things which are really good souvenirs.

Ok selection of shops
Aug 2016 • Couples
We were looking for some artisan goods such as ponchos, rugs and pottery so went to the artisan market. The selection was ok, a bit strange there were no rugs in the entire market and it is one of the most typical artisan goods from NW Argentina. Prices were significantly higher than in other shops or in the small towns.

Regional Handcraft Market
Jun 2016 • Solo
It is one of the best places to shop for regional handcrafts and artisanal products made by local artisans and artists. There is a great variety of products including mate, bombillas, frames made of wood and alpaca (metal), also clothing such as scarfs, pashminas, sweaters made of guanaco and alpaca (cloth). You will also find all sorts of souvenirs. As a local, its my gifts shopping spot for international friends when I travel. I definetely reccomend it.

decent cluster of shops
Aug 2015 • Family
On one side of the street is the true artesanal shops with nice, handmade products. Across the street is a cluster of stands offering Andean style products such as ponchos, hats, musical instruments, etc. Depending on what you are looking for, it could be worth your while.

perfect place for small souvenirs

Visited 10/8/14
Well worth the 20pesos taxi fare to get there, you can easily spend the whole morning browsing.
Excellent alpaca scarves, silver jewellery and wooden masks - prices are very modest.
When you finished cross the road to find a small modern shop with knitted owls! loved it

Some Nice Items
Aug 2013 • Solo
The USD4 taxi ride to the market from the central area is worth it if you're looking to buy larger-ticket items. If you're only looking for cheap trinkets and other souvenirs, head to the souvenir shops in the town center instead. There were only 4 to 5 shops in the market and most of the nicer items on offer were pricey.

Don't bother with the souvenir shops across the street from the artesenal market because items sold here are similar to those sold in the town center and the smaller towns of Purmamarca and Huamahuaca (if you're headed there, shop for souvenirs in these towns as prices are something like 40% cheaper).

Be sure to visit the Artist Cooperative store!
Mar 2014 • Solo
It is about a 25 peso taxi-ride from the center of town to the mercado. Don't waste your time with the vendors across the street - they have the same old stuff from Peru, Bolivia and Guatemala you see everywhere. Go right to the Mercado Artesanal (white building with the arches). And don't miss the Artists Cooperative store which is next to the path to the restrooms. It was the best collection of handmade jewelry in silver and alpaca that I saw in Salta. They will take pesos or USD and credit cards (but there might be an extra charge to use the card). I'm very glad I visited.
