The must go place for shopping. Lots of bargains to be had. The market is so colourful and full of characters. Very sad to find the guinea pig hotel next door to the clay oven.
I will always visit this market as bargains are always to be had. Get a taxi to bring you to the market rather than a bus as it so much more comfortable.

Very colourful market where the narrow road are lined up with stalls selling, silver, souvenirs, alpaca wear , food and fruits. Relatively clean. Need to bargain. There are native holding baby alpaca and llama to ask for photo for a few sol. We also had lesson from one of the shop to identify the baby alpaca from synthetic and also to identify real silver jewelry from fake one.
Interseting visit.

So much to see and buy here! Of course a lot of the same stuff you’ll see in Cusco. And almost every stall has the same stuff...still I liked this market the best. Worth a stop for sure!

We arrived at Pisac Market in the morning as any people were still setting up. Vendors offered many alpaca and "alpaca" goods, along with pottery, t-shirts, and jewelry, and various tchotchkes to bring home to your loved ones from Peru. The market is surrounded by stores as well, where we stepped in and were given a lesson about silver and stone work, with workers demonstrating the craft, which was pretty nifty. We wandered the market for some time, looking over the various items and never felt pressure to buy. You may bargain the items down by about 20%, and if you buy an item over 150 soles, generally you will be offered a little key chain or magnet as a thank you.

We stopped off here but only stayed about half an hour. All the markets are very similar selling the same kinda stuff but it’s a nice place to wander around anyway.
Bought a painted wooden plate from a lovely lady sitting painting them at her stall, lovely to see some craftsmanship in amongst some of the tat!
