Fodor's Expert Review Mercado Artesanal

Easter Island Crafts

Next to the church is the Mercado Artesanal, a large building filled with crafts stands. Here, local artisans whittle wooden moai and string together seashell necklaces. It's open Monday–Saturday 9–8 (until 7 May–October) and Sunday 10–1:30. When specific vendors step out briefly, they cover their wares with a blanket.
