This boxy market between Sargento Aldea and Latorre is the cheapest and fastest place for a no-frills set lunch. Upstairs cocinerías also offer varied seafood, and stalls offer fresh produce for self-caterers. You can buy coca leaves (CH$500 for a bag) and sex tonics in the roadside stalls. Coca leaves are great for treating altitude sickness (brew them up in a tea), while the sex tonics don’t work at all (believe us, we tried!).
