This is an outdoor market where you can buy touristy trinkets, weavings, etc. I don't think this is anything special - you can buy virtually everything in the market in all parts of Ecuador. This is a big stop of the tourist trail but I'm not sure why. On the positive side, the main plaza in Otavalo is wonderful.
