    Mercado de Monsefú

    The village of Monsefú, on the road from Chiclayo to Puerto Etén, is famed throughout the region for its weavers who produce a variety of clothes, hats and handicrafts from natural fibers. Shops selling locally produced wares line Calle 28 de Julio, beginning in front of the town's plaza.

    Centro Artesanal Norte

    This artisan center is actually a tiny mall with a collection of different craft shops featuring regional specialties from baskets to weavings to Chulucanas pottery. While it feels a bit abandoned – you'll have to get the manager to unlock each of the stalls – it’s a decent option if you don’t have time to go to the outlying craft towns.
