Mercado de la Pulgas
Address: parking lot of the UCV baseball stadium, Parque Central district
Timings: Mondays to Saturdays 8am to 8pm
A large open-air flea market, specializing in new and used clothes, shoes, handbags, bed sheets, curtains, and other fabrics for use around the house. A domestic, family-like environment, with most customers from the local neighborhoods around town.
Head here if you urgently need a pair of cheap clothes or footwear, not for some exciting high-paced shopping action. Or, you could come down here to watch Caraqueños go about the most mundane of chores while you enjoy an arepa or coffee from an adjoining stall.
