Located a couple of blocks from Lima’s Plaza de Armas, this multi-storey market offers an incredible glimpse into the daily shopping of limeños. The huge main building is organized by sections ranging from animal products to clothes. Those looking to cook with the day’s freshest ingredients will have aisles and aisles of choices. Meanwhile, those merely looking will be content to wander past unusual sights such as pig’s heads, bins of shellfish and bags of quinoa. The streets surrounding the official market building are even more to marvel at; filled with cookware, electronics and shoes, as well as vendors willing to barter. Don’t miss out on the market’s food stalls for a cheap, authentic Peruvian meal.
