The Inca Market
In the heart of Miraflores, the tourist district, you can find this market that boasts handcrafted objects and typical Peruvian souvenirs. Some of them include traditional textiles, Incan style jewellery, Peru’s famous alpaca scarves and shawls, Pisco, and much more.
This gift shopping zone is a great place to go to if you are looking to bring a few remembrances of Peru to the folk back home.
Try putting those haggling skills to good use as the shopkeepers oftentimes demand steep prices for their goods. With a winning smile and a bit of persuasion, you are sure to leave with your bags full.
Address: Inca Market, Calle Gonzales Prada 280, Miraflores, Peru
Gamarra is fully dedicated to clothes. It is the place to go for some cheap shopping. Gamarra offers cheap alternatives from nameless brands but also sells knock-offs of your favourite brands for about 1/4th the price. At the centre of Gamarra there is a relatively small space where you can have delicious foods, including pork prepared on a Caja China, which is some sort of BBQ box. Gamarra is well worth a trip from Miraflores and it doesn’t even take that long thanks to the electric train. A train ride from Cabitos station (go down Benavides Street to Ovalo Higuereta from Miraflores) to Gamarra station takes about 12 minutes and drops you right at the entrance.
