Good variety of breads, grains, fresh and dried fruit and souvenirs (toques, scarfs, knickknacks). Great to see varieties of potatoes! Lots of locals in the food court eating at lunch.

Practically anything you want is here. Produce, meat, food, souvenirs, clothing. Get lost in local life. Sit and eat soup, buy some fruit and wander. There are even 'witches' to tell your future!

This market is huge, under roof, organized, and an interesting place to spend an hour browsing. There are stalls that sell the material/skirts that Quechan women wear and a few stalls have sewing machines for custom work.

The local currency is Peruvian soles. You should change many in the central Plaza de Armas. The airports tend to overcharge!

Yes, they do! They not only sell the live cactus, they also sell a powdered San Pedro. There were several vendors who sold it. :)
