The same stuff you can buy from nearly every other market across Peru. The area is covered for when it rains it is dry, so if there is bad weather at Machu Picchu then at least you can stay dry.

Mementos of one's holiday are on the whole cheaper in Bolivia than here. However there is a fine selection of items on sale for a reasonable price if one is prepared to barter. From the El Mapi it's just a short walk over the bridge...More

This market is huge, with a wide variety of souvenir options, including alpaca, and "alpaca" items. I bought a number of inexpensive items for family members back home. The folks were friendly and generally willing to barter. Many accept major credit cards, although not all....More

Right next to the train station, you literally have to walk through it to get to the trains or to leave the station. Lots of tourist based trinkets at most stalls. Some of the sales people will bargain with you, some won't so you know...More

This was the best place to find a t short bragging about your Inca Trail success. But sizes were limited. Lots and lots of stalls with people who looked bored. Prices weren’t cheap and for jewellery was quite over priced compared to other places I....More

If this is a one stop place on your trip this market has some good souvenirs. However, compared to Lima or Cusco prices are high. Typical market fare- beanies, bags, scarves, socks, alpaca jumpers. A good spot to keep dry on a rainy day! Remember...More

All markets have good and "otherwise" vendors with some products made nearby (really) and some import them to look like they were from a nearby supplier...be wary travelers...
