Fodor's Expert Review Mercado Artesanal

Puno Crafts

Model reed boats, small stone carvings, and alpaca-wool articles are among the local crafts sold near the Port at Puno's Mercado Artesanal. If you find you aren't dressed for Puno's chilly evenings, it's the place to buy inexpensive woolen goods but the cheaper they are, the more likely they are a blend with synthetics, though they will still keep you warm. Open 8–6. Make sure you know where your wallet or purse is while you're snapping a photo of the colorful market.
