Market shopping

Peruvian markets all have sections for fruit, vegetables, bread, meat and dairy. There are also sections for fresh juices, breakfast and lunch.

The largest markets, like San Pedro in Cusco, have sections for everything from ceramics and baskets to clothes and shoes.

Weekly markets are more likely to have everything a daily market has, plus artisanal crafts and kitchenware.

Many women who knit or weave at home set up outside official markets, since they often don’t want to rent a stall inside an organized market if they don’t come every week.
