Markets in Lima

The hustle and bustle in the markets of Lima

Great variety of vegetables, fruits and everything possible

The markets show a lot about the local conditions of the different countries. So who wants to learn more about the traditions, the cultivated foods and the habits of the population? They must visit a market. The fruits and vegetables that are offered, or other things that are not so easy at home, leave a strong impression. For example, Peru is known for its potato varieties, ranging from yellow to violet and black. The situation is similar with corn cobs. Some varieties are almost white, others red to purple. The markets of Lima are distributed in different neighborhoods and, therefore, depending on where the starting point is, sometimes on foot or by taxi or bus. As a general rule, foods are cheaper in the market than in supermarkets. That and the variety are sometimes a small problem: he would like to try everything.
