Surquillo Market

Mercado Surquillo No.1

Surquillo Market

Address
Paseo de la Republica block 53
District
  • Surquillo
City (Peru)
Lima

Located in the district of Surquillo, the Surquillo market is just a few blocks from Parque Kennedy in Miraflores, only a ten minute walk on Av. Ricardo Palma over the bridge. The mercado in Surquillo is an enormous, genuine and bustling place where locals do their everyday shopping. It offers great quality food for amazingly low prices. A wide range of fresh Peruvian fruits, vegetables, herbs, meat, fish, seafood and even harder to find ingredients await you.

Around the market hall are hundreds of small stores selling everything from kitchen and table ware, groceries and even clothes. And along adjoining Calle Narciso de la Colina a gastronomic boulevard was opened in 2010, where locals and tourists alike can enjoy a delicious Peruvian meal.

The market in Surquillo can get crowded. And as opportunity makes the thief, we recommend leaving your valuables at home.
