Fodor's Expert Review Mercado Negro

La Paz Market/Bazaar

Near the intersection of Calle Max Paredes and Calle Graneros, the streets are filled with peddlers hawking clothing, handcrafts, and household goods. Making your way through the twisting maze of knock-offs and cheap imitations can take time, but you can find just about anything. Tucked into alleys and courtyards are tambos (thatch or tin roof structures meaning "place of rest") where you can purchase oranges, bananas, and coca leaves. The leaf is chewed by farmers and miners (and tourists) to ward off hunger and the effects of the altitude.
