San Pedro Market
In most Andean towns, the markets are community hubs where you can find basic local ingredients, handmade traditional clothes, and even the ingredients necessary for creating magical potions and shamanic spells. In the city of Cusco, San Pedro Market is the place to go for local foods, crafts, and culture. The market is located in the city center. Alongside local ingredients and produce, you'll encounter cheap, delicious meals and juices. You may also come across a sampling of the region's unique artistic tradition here.

Not for the Faint Hearted
Must see if you go to Cusco, but come prepared. In between the produce & juice stands, you'll find animal jaws & pigs heads. I highly recommend going just for the experience.
