Another market in the routes of the Valle Sagrado de los Incas ...
Oct 2019
As at every single stop in our long journey in the routes of the "Valle Sagrado de los Incas", in Ollantaytambo it could not be different. The "Mercado Artesanal" is strategically located at the town's "Plaza Central", right in front of the main entrance to the "Parque Arqueológico de Ollantaytambo". So, no way to miss it! These markets generally sell the same kind of typical products, with small variations on the prices practiced. Some bargaining is expected and, if reasonable, will certainly be happily accepted in all of them. The "Mercado Artesanal" de Ollantaytambo is quite nice, vendors are not too pushy and one can easily walk around its aisles and stalls. However, my favorite markets in the "Valle Sagrado de los Incas" were "Manos de la Comunidad" (near Cusco), "Pisac Market" (in Pisac) and "Centro Textil Acllas" (in Chinchero). Enjoy!

plenty of inexpensive shopping
Sep 2019
The prices at this market were generally a bit better than most other markets & shops we came across in the Cusco / Sacred Valley / Machu Picchu area. There were 8 long structures with about 5-6 stalls on each side, though not all were open at the same time. Since we stayed in Ollantaytambo, we sometimes passed through at non-peak times (morning & evening) when many were closed. Afternoons were busier. I like shopping, but have my limits, so this was plenty large enough for me. Added to the local shops, we had plenty to see and entertain us, and plenty of choices for souvenirs.

I saw much of the same items at these markets as at others, but there was a variety here that you might not see elsewhere in one place. And since it's just outside the entrance to Ollantaytambo's largest ruins and not far from the center square, it's very convenient.

Market place

They certainly know where to put a market in this town - directly as you walk out of the ruins!! Fortunately, there was no hard sell so we could just have a look around

Lots of closed shops

I liked the fact that you weren't being pressured into buying anything. I walked around the entire Mercardo in about 40 mins and it was interesting to see their souvenirs. I bought a tobacco pipe made out of bone for 5 soles.

Very authentic and fun!

Remember--you have to barter if you want a deal, but this place is also about the whole atmosphere. It is fairly small in comparison, but the locals were very nice and all the food was incredible.

Beautiful stuff. Fun to meander. Just outside the ruins.

Great setting in a cool little town to meander and check out. We took a mototaxi (they're so cool) from the train station to the square and wandered the streets for beautiful views of the mountains. Didn't have time to do the ruins unfortunately.

Pleasant enough

Certainly cheaper than Lima. No great hassle to buy. Goods the same as many places elsewhere. People were friendly. Not too busy.
