    Small store-front Bodegas: Tourist Stops

    Internet shop

    Like many old cities there are little stores in the tourist areas to sell souvenir items

    However there are also small places where you can access the internet. These are not always in the tourist areas.

    Wong: Grocery supermarket

    Store advertisement above the street signs
    4 more images

    I kept seeing signs on the traffic lights and also in the median strips. In some cases, the signs indicated the section of the city that we were in (like Miraflores).

    But one particularly outstanding red sign said WONG in white letters on it. I asked the tour guide and she said it was a grocery store.

    shopping Lima-Miraflores

    Market Parque Kennedy
    2 more images

    Avenida Petit Thouars, where it meets the Av. Ricardo Palma (continuance of Av. Pardo towards Via Expresa), 2 blocks from the Ovalo-Parque Central/Parque Kennedy. Many souvenir shops gathered together. Walk the Petit Thouars for 3 to 5 blocks up (direction centre of Lima, you'll also pass by the post-office) and there are many. Maybe a little, but very little, more expensive than in the centre of Lima.
    From around 5 pm to 11 pm the Parque Kennedy has, in the middle a small local crafts market.
    Around Parque Kennedy many department stores (Ripley, Saga Falabella) and bars/ restaurants.
    Advantage here is that it's a relatively safe area.
    The shops in Larco Mar are much more expensive. Window-shopping and good for a drink/meal with a great view over the Pacific.

    WONG: supermercado II

    WONG

    Similar to Santa Isabel, also in the whole city of Lima in several districts. You can get everything here as well, fresh food and all you need, but it is except of the offers often more expensive than in the market places. But the quality is general very good (as in St Isabel as well)

    Polvos Azules: Cheap-and pirated-goods

    by nhoolb Written May 3, 2009

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Polvos Azules "Shopping Center" (Blue Powders), on the Via Expresa (Paseo de la Republica) where it begins from Lima center, close to Plaza Grau.
    A huge building, covers a whole block at least, where EVERYTHING is sold. Cheap. Noisy. Also hundreds of stalls that sell (pirated!) cd's and dvd's of all genres and styles. Mind the import-regulations of your home country though!
    It is safe but beware pickpockets, as everywhere.
    Every taxi driver knows where it is. From Miraflores expect to pay around 8-10 soles.

    Info January 2009.

    This is one of the biggest malls I've ever seen or been to. Two stories tall and shop after shop. Great place to go shopping. There is even a grocery store for picking up things for the hotel (snacks, etc). They have all the designer names present and local flavors as well. It comes with a giant food court as well. This mall and Larco Mar are the best bets for shopping.

    What to buy: Anything

    What to pay: Average

    Miraflores Park vendors: Paintings in the Park

    by XKuger Written Apr 12, 2005

    The miraflores park has a number of vendors selling various local art stuff in the evening/night. You can see some very nice water color paintings being sold at this park.

    Prices are incredibally cheap and you can fine some nice values for 10US$ or less.

    What to buy: Most definitly I would suggest the water color paintings

    What to pay: Max 10US$ for a small painting. It depends on how well you speak spanish and negotiation skills.
