A Stroll through Cuzco’s Repository of Food Knowledge, Its Markets

Fresh Carrots

Cuzco’s cuisine inherits a wide range of dishes with flavors that have developed over thousands of years. Thanks to the ample production of foods our Earth Mother offers us we are fortunate to possess a great variety of ingredients, vegetables, grains, and fruits, which allow us to make our distinguished traditional dishes.

Our markets hold the best products. To walk through them is fascinating.They are a museum of food and enclose history and stories that only our caseras, vendors, disclose.

In what follows we offer you a morning stroll through the market.

  1. I absolutely love wandering through the marketplaces in Cusco and checking out all the great produce and everything else ! I also love walking down the street and grabbing a snack from a vendor.
