Pisac Market, a stop off on the Sacred Valley tour, is in a pretty town at just under 3,000m elevation. Contrary to what the guide books say, there is a market to visit every day of the week, although Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays remain the busiest. The market is made up of colourful rows of stalls selling products from ponchos to sweaters to bags and toys. Nearly everything in the market is made from Al Paca wool. Vendors are not too pushy, so you can browse with not too much pressure to buy. That said, you will find it hard not to resist the the smiles of the stall-holders and the beautiful bright colours of the handicrafts.
The market is aimed at the tourist trade, so can get busy when the bus loads come in. This is a charming place to visit and even if shopping doesn't interest you in the slightest, you will love the colours and the atmosphere of this pretty, engaging town. If you do fancy a spot of shopping, bring local currency with you from Cusco.
