I hit the market early that day to check out the merchandise. It was a beautiful, sunny day and I couldn't resist the temptation to bring my camera along to photograph all the gorgeous colors and textures. Markets are one of my favorite events to attend while traveling. The hustle and bustle of the organized chaos is endearing. I am always eager to be included. Visiting a local market is very revealing of the culture; a great place to learn about the food and textiles.

Market day in Pisac is held every Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday.
