Craft market Nov 05, 2016
On the western side of the Plaza des Armas we found a large marquee which was providing shelter for a fair-sized craft market. This was very much a local affair – local people selling the items they themselves make, with some of them producing their goods as they sat at their stalls. Although tourists like ourselves were browsing the displays, many of those visiting the market seemed to be friends of the stall-holders or other locals, spending part of their Saturday morning here. While we didn’t buy anything, this market would be a good source of reasonably priced knitted goods such as hats and mittens, as well as little trinkets, fashion jewellery and even clothing.

Across the street is the Feria Artesanal, a selection of small shops around a grassy square. Items here are naturally more expensive but still struck me as reasonable, and I was very tempted by an alpaca jumper although in the end resisted that temptation! This little complex is permanent but I am unsure whether the craft market is held any day other than Saturday – although the marquee was certainly there on other days.
