Beautiful and colorful market where you can find all kind of sweaters, hats, souvenirs, ponchos and a lot more to take back home. You can get lost there taking amazing pictures. If you are planning to go, i suggest you to ask your driver or tour guide to plan in advance few hours there. It is worth it!

Pisac Market is touristy but worth seeing! The colors and variety of the crafts are amazing! Loved the cobblestone roads! Be careful of taking pictures of the locals they do want you to pay them for the picture.

We missed the big Sunday market, but the weekday offering was still impressive. We were on our way to the Pisa ruin entrance and had to walk thru the market so we didn't do a lot of shopping or browsing. Nice assortment of stalls for what we did see though.

What a place to visit! The booths of colors, arts, crafts, weaving, paintings, jewelry etc. is exciting to look through and bargain for - dickering is expected here and easy. There are really pretty necklaces, that don't take a lot of suitcase room, that I just had to buy. Look for that perfect gift , souvenirs for family , children... More

Pisac market is easy to access from Cusco via a 40 minute collectivo drive . the market is laways there in some form but best on a Sunday when locals arrive to sell fresh produce and food to eat . An excellent place to browse for gifts and its ok to haggle with the prices . Find the old ancient... More

Pisac is a small town in valle sagrado. The market is a great place to buy cheap souvenirs. Ask for a better price and you will always get a discount. Most places accept dollars so you dont have to worry about having soles to buy something. In the market there is a small cafe where you can find an ATM.... More

Touristy, but a nice stopover to spend an hour or so looking at crafts and wares in a traditional market setting.
