I've been to rural markets in other countries, especially in the Middle East and North Africa, which colored my expectations. This one was OK, but not as "authentic" as I was hoping to see. Big area was for tourists and a smaller area devoted to...More

One thing you are never short of in Peru is handcraft markets as they are everywhere, but this one is one of the cheapest and more colourful. Worth as part of the visit to Chincheros

Chincheros is a sleepy little town with not much to see. A church (which is not well-kept) some terraces and a small market in the main plaza. The market is small but way cheaper than Pisac's. That's about it.

A small village less than an hour’s drive from Cusco with a pretty church & small handicraft/souvenir market. Worth a quick visit when combined with a trip to the nearby Maras salt mines & Moray terraces.

The highlight of our stop in Chinchero was the incredible old church but we also enjoyed a stroll through the Sunday market. The locals' produce sections were our favorite.

I hope I am reviewing the correct place, as we arrived after dark and I didn't notice a sign. This place is gated and has tables around the edges lined with goods the women here make themselves. We were greeted by four ladies wearing traditional...More
