One of the most colourful markets in the world


Every Sunday, members of the tribes of the Sacred Valley of the Incas descend on the small, dusty town of Pisac for the local market.

Many walk long distances to reach the market, and several wear traditional custumes. 

The market specialises in local fruits, vegetables and meats, along with local ceramics and items made of alpaca wool. 

It is a riot of colour and I hope you enjoy these photos.
