Fodor's Review

Beginning at the intersection of Avenida Balta and Avenida Arica, this vast and popular market has fresh meat, vegetables, and fruit from local farms, as well as clothing, DVDs and CDs, handbags, and more. You can also ask at any of the stalls to point you to the southwest corner, where there is an extensive mercado de brujos (witchdoctor's market), where dozens of herbalists, curanderos, and shamans offer their folk remedies, many of them made of dried animals like armadillos and llama fetuses. Wander around and enjoy, but don't lose your companions in the crowd and keep a close guard on your belongings.
