The Urubamba Market

The Urubamba Market
Forget markets selling woven alpaca goods, catering to tourists—this is the farmers’ market where locals buy their groceries. The biggest of its kind in the Valley, you’ll find stands selling fresh fruits and vegetables, meats of all kinds, fresh cheeses, nuts, spices, coffee, and much more. On Wednesdays, Fridays, and Sundays, when the market is even larger, it spills out onto side streets where people hawk products like medicinal herbs, and, more recently, organic offerings direct from private gardens. Urubamba is located just off the main plaza in town.
