Travel Pro Places of Interest #154: Mercado Surquillo in Lima Peru! Part One (10 photos)

in travel •  3 months ago 

Hey there friends and followers. One of my favorite things to do while traveling the world is exploring the markets. The market place is so exciting, it truly has an energy of it's own. The market is where people come together, socialize, and show off what's good in their part of the world. It's fun, it's cultural, it's tasty, and I love it!

Here in Lima Peru we find ourselves in an the old world market of Surquillo near the popular and safe to stay Mira Flores part of the City. This market was a great place to take in the food, culture, and way of life in Lima Peru. Peru is famous for their food. They have a large selection of fruits and vegetables. Meat is done in an old fashion way as you will see, and I'd only consider purchasing it here as a foreigner early in the morning when it is most fresh.

The city of Lima is right on the coast of the Pacific Ocean a little south of the Equator. The seas are deep, cold, and filled with fish and this market has a good selection of that as well. Due to sanitary concerns I almost never eat at markets like this but the locals have no problem chowing down for some of the most affordable prices in the city.

Overall this is a very fun and exciting place be. Now come along and lets have a closer look at Mercado Surquillo in Lima Peru!

I am sitting at a cafe today, on one of the Caribbean Islands, trying to acknowledge all of the wonderful posts that you put out for the challenge during my absence. I was simply blown away by your kindness and I want to thank you so much for taking the time to put together a @MarketFriday post while I have been away! I was able to read them, however, I was not able to comment, resteem or once I left on the cruise, upvote them. I am still on a cruise and have made it back to the Caribbean and will be home Sunday night, November 17 or possibly as late as the 18th. Because tomorrow is #MarketFriday once again, I am not able to drain my voting power, but I would love to leave a significant tip in its place. Thank you again for keeping #MarketFriday going! It is appreciated more than you will know! I leave you with a tip.

#MarketFriday loves you! 💖 !tip .40

Love, Denise
