Peruvian Market

Peruvians go shopping!

In Venezuela there is a large Peruvian community, as evidenced by this peculiar market that is held every Sunday on Amador Bendayán Boulevard. It's the perfect place to sample Peruvian cuisine, one of the most diverse and comprehensive in the world, although you can also find ceramics, textiles and silverware typical of the Andean country. The best part is that, in addition to takeout, you can have it right there, freshly cooked, and accompanied by beer, chocolate and traditional desserts. The prices are affordable and the quality is high, especially for typical dishes such as ceviche, chowder or chili dishes. To get there, it's best to take the metro to the Colegio de Ingenieros station; once there, you can't miss it. If you want to buy food, it's best to arrive before two o'clock, because from that time on many products may sell out.
