In Peru's markets and stalls, bargaining is the name of the game. Indeed, you will find no prices on display in the markets. Instead, you will need to bargain. Wait until the seller suggests a price, and then offer to pay half to two thirds, and take it from there.

It is worth checking out prices on a few stalls with similar products before entering into bargaining, to get a good idea of value. Also recommended is to buy a lot of things at the same stall; sellers will often discount prices for those buying in bulk. Stalls away from the main arteries of markets generally have better bargains than those near strategic corners. Most importantly, don't pass up that unique sweater for the sake of a dollar. That dollar will mean more to the stall holder than to you, and you will surely regret it when you get home.
