The Crazy Things You Can Buy at San Pedro Market in Cusco, Cusco, Peru (B)

I’m going to go ahead and start this post off with a disclaimer. WARNING: If you don’t like seeing dead animals/bits of dead animals this post is not for you. Every piece of the cow is used and sold here (seriously, every piece), and there are some little animals eaten in Peru that Americans regard as pets. So, as long as y’all aren’t squeamish with this stuff…we’ll move onto what you can all buy at the glorious San Pedro Market in Cusco, Peru!

San Pedro Market is a HUGE market just a few blocks from the main square in Cusco. It’s open 7 days a week and starts around 6 am and closes up at about 8 pm. It’s a great place to go for lunch, as it’s incredibly inexpensive (but oh so tasty) to get all kinds of goodies…especially great big bowls of soup (sopa). The biggest piece of advice I can give for visiting is to make sure you set aside plenty of time to take it all in. We, unfortunately, had to catch a flight that afternoon and were a bit rushed going through the market…BIG MISTAKE. There are so many incredible and downright bizarre stalls in San Pedro Market – you could spend all day here! ...... (follow the instructions below for accessing the rest of this article).
