"Pisac Market" Top 5 Page for this destination Peru Shopping Tip by melosh
Peru Shopping: 39 reviews and 35 photos
The market starts in the center of Pisac and extends into the other streets. Sunday is the biggest day. Several VT members found this market overwhelmed with tourists in June, July and August. In May this was not the case. Although this was the second day of our trip I bought alot and had to carry it for weeks, but never found anything equivalent at a lower price. Of course, one has to bargain agressively.
What to buy: Weavings -- the variety of styles is outstanding. (One caution, the "stuffed wool weaving" style originally from San Pedro de las Cajas, and probably thought of as characteristic of Peru were the exception by not being of particularly high quality or good price in the Pisac market.
What to pay: More than you "should", less than you will ever regret.
