Fodor's Expert Review Feria Artesanal Castro
The city's Feria Artesanal, a lively, often chaotic crafts market, is regarded by most as the best place on the island to pick up the woolen sweaters, woven baskets, and straw figures for which Chiloé is known. Prices are already quite reasonable, but vendors expect some bargaining. The stalls share the place with several food vendors. It's open daily 9–dusk though the best time to come is Saturday morning, when artisans from all over the island come to sell their wares.
