Drawing of the produce women at the Sunday Pisac Market, Peru
There’s perhaps no more famous market in South America than Pisac’s Sunday Market. The touristy tchotchkes, fake alpaca scarves, and mass-produced blankets were not all that interesting. But, the part of the market where women sold produce they’d hauled down from the surrounding hills was colorful and exciting.
I love local markets, I love how they reveal so much of their society through their colors and their sellers’ shoutings :)
Checking out local markets is one of our favorite things to do when we travel. We have some really amazing photos of other Peruvian markets coming up—one pic might be my favorite photo from the entire trip! Hope you follow us on Facebook, Twitter, or through our newsletter so you can find out when we share them!
