Chincheros Indian Market

The colorful Sunday market at Chinchero attracts stallholders and browsers from near and far.

This traditional Andean town is known as ‘the birthplace of the rainbow’, and it has the full complement of photogenic attractions: Inca ruins, Andean village houses, an elaborate colonial church built on Inca foundations, and of course the lively weekly market.

Visit the market to buy vegetables from the local traders, and Andean handicrafts from the Quechua stallholders. The hand-woven textiles are a particular highlight, and a proudly preserved Inca tradition. The highlanders trade their woven crafts for the fruit and vegetables grown at lower altitudes.

You’ll also find jewelry, pottery, toys, rugs and musical pipes for sale at the market.
