Those visiting the majestic ‘White City’ of Sucre should take time to peruse its colorful and vibrant markets. There are a number to choose from, offering up everything from fresh fruits and vegetables, everyday necessities and stunning locally crafted textiles, all for rock bottom prices. Read on to learn more about what’s on offer at the city’s best market places.
Those looking to upgrade their wardrobe should check out the city’s most extensive fashion shopping district. Mercado Negro is a maze of narrow alleyways covered by haphazard corrugated iron roofing that is home to countless clothing and shoe stalls. Most of the products are western designs which have been shipped in on-mass from China, so don’t expect high quality or legit brand name apparel. There are also some traditional Bolivian designs scattered around the place.
