The San Pedro Market has a lot to offer, souvenirs, alpaca clothing and every type of food and herbs imaginable. Many vendors sell the same items, but it's still a cool atmosphere in there. The biggest plus are the very cheap prices, especially the meals...More

Fantastic market, we started everyday with a fruit smoothie . We had the chicken soup quite a few days and lived the atmosphere in here. Amazing value and family friendly.

Definitely go to the San Pedro Market if you're in Cusco. A lot of the people who worked at the hotels and restaurants told us that we may not like it, and that it was more of a locals thing, but we decided to go...More

Having an English speaking guide to tell us what the different fruits and vegetables were was a plus. The market also has clothing and other souvenir items. Well worth a visit.

It’s a good place to experience local life and a great place to get your souvenirs. And the best part is Elvira’s Picarone. Go there after 3pm and find the best donut in town in the trolley near the food session. You won’t regret it!

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