Mercado Dédalo (Dédalo Market)
Affordable prices for avant-garde art in all its forms and colours.
Bohemian and avant-garde.
If you love contemporary art, designer jewellery, new trends in clothing and decoration, as well as avant-garde art in all disciplines, you can't leave Lima without visiting the 'Mercado Dédalo', synonym of bohemia in the district of Barranco. As the representatives of the best Peruvian designers go round their premises, nobody would say that the origin of this great art market is in the garage of María Elena Fernández, the gallery owner who is responsible for the project. What began as a place where contemporary handicrafts could be sold to friends, is now a large shopping centre where you can see what the latest designers are producing and at affordable prices. This market has Peruvian fabrics of pure cotton and alpaca mix with original catwalk jewellery and a corner dedicated to relaxing between each purchase, known as the patio of 'Dédalos', where you can enjoy a coffee with a sandwich.
