Mercado Artesanal - Shopping Puno - Peru

As you head from the Plaza de Armas, east towards Lake Titicaca, you arrive at the Mercado Artesanal just before Puno’s main port, Puerta Lacustre. This artisan market, representing several local cooperatives, is made up of over a dozen alleyways lined with stalls on the south side of the street. It provides an ample opportunity to check out the scores of vendors who are selling folk art, hand-made clothing, musical instruments, food and many other items. This is the perfect place to pick up souvenirs and gifts for the folks back home.
