Markets in the Sacred Valley of the Incas

Markets in the Sacred Valley are not the same

As farmers markets here in Corvallis or markets elsewise

Markets in Calca for example seem more like Fred Meyer, One Stop Shopping

Because of the variety of food, kitchenware, clothing and blankets

 


 

What do you expect? Have you seen the corn taxi that brings people and food to town

Did you get up early Saturday morning to get to market in time to find

The best stuff, that fruit, vegetable or meat for breakfast, lunch or dinner?

Were you here last week? Did you see something you wanted and came back?

 


The Corn Taxi

 


 

Or were you thinking of Pisac, the larger market with entertainment

Photo ops with goats, dancers in costume, people watching

Where you can get a blanket made from alpaca wool, which is warm because it is hollow.

Where music abounds and bargains are made and local art is taken home.
