Mercado Artesanal Review
Salta has all the usual main high-street shops where you can stock up on sundries, but for souvenirs and regional products, provincial villages are a better bet. However, there are a few proud exceptions to that rule, including the huge 1882 Jesuit monastery that holds the Mercado Artesanal and the open stalls across the street. Look for red-and-black Salteño ponchos, alpaca knitwear and weavings, leather goods, wooden animal masks, and fine silver. Everything is open daily 9–9.
