There are several markets all over Chile and I love being able to buy from them because I know it isn’t easy for the owners to stand by their merchandise all day trying to make the best living they can. The markets remind me a bit of people who stand out in 181st in Manhattan selling merchandise. They have awesome clothes, bags, jewelry, and souvenirs at great prices. The best part of buying at these markets is that some of the merchandise is made by the very people selling it, I try to support those vendors the most, true authenticity. My favorite market of all the ones I’ve visited is near el Cerro de Santa Lucia, I’ve gone twice and I know I will have to fit in a third visit before leaving Santiago.
