This is shopping Arequipa-style. Covering several blocks near the Plaza de Armas, the San Camilo Market has been providing locals with fresh fruits, potatoes, beans, breads, cheeses, jams, even giant guinea pigs (the eating kind, not the petting kind) for over 130 years. Come for a hearty breakfast on the market's second floor and enjoy some of the best people watching available in the city, then meander down rows of fruit stacked 10 ft high and stock up for your impending adventures into the Arequipa countryside. It's a delicious, traditional way to experience some authentic flavors of southern Peru.
Location:Approximately 5 blocks southeast of the Plaza de Armas, Calle San Camilo, Arequipa
