Sacred Valley Highlights: Pisac Market


Hunt for a bargain at the Pisac Market

Sitting at the foot of an original Inca settlement, Pisac is a charming colonial town founded in 1570 that hosts a thriving market selling an impressive variety of goods such as ceramics, jewelry and textiles. Pisac Market is perfect if you’re looking to bring back some souvenirs as it offers an exceptional crafts and ceramics section where you can purchase beautiful hand-painted multi-colored breads. Although the market is held every day, it doubles in size on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays when the usual traditional crafts are joined by fresh Andean produce such as fruits, spices and grains. The largest market of the week is held on Sundays, where the stalls start from the central Plaza and spread into the inclined streets leading to the foot of the mountain. In spite of its popularity, the market has retained much of its local charm and tradition, since villagers gather from miles around to barter their produce. Hundreds of individual vendors crowd the streets and display an abundance of knitted products, jewelry and alpaca jumpers. The Pisac Market is a fantastic experience that will test your haggling skills and allow you to completely immerse yourself in the hustle and bustle of Peruvian everyday life. See more of our favorite experiences in Peru’s Sacred Valley…
