Mercado Municipal San Miguel

This varied market sells everything from locally made souvenirs and handmade pieces to fresh fruit, vegetables and cooked foods. It’s the ideal place to stock up on textiles to bring home, or extra layers for Salta’s chilly winter evenings. It’s a bit off the beaten track, but you can find some well-made pieces for a fraction of the price they sell for in the more touristy spots.

Samponia

Samponia specialises in traditionally woven Inca textiles, but also stocks a wider range of carefully curated crafted items begging to be brought home in your suitcase – think cushions, rugs and small pieces of furniture with quirky touches. You may go in for a peek and end up laden with a bag or two brimming with purchases.

Ambay

Selling artisan goods at reasonable prices, Ambay is the place to shop for buttery-soft alpaca homewares and textiles. From pom-pom covered cushions to brightly upholstered footstools and chairs, the selection is extensive. If you’ve got some cash to splurge, Ambay also sells a wide range of wrought silverware.
