My title really gives it all. You can find anything you want here, from dry goods to pigs feet. I saw the latter hanging on hooks and OMG! It made my stomach churned. I came here on a Sunday and was not very crowded. They...More
Swung through for lunch after a walking tour. Can't speak to the non-food part of market but the food section works just like similar markets in Peru, Singapore etc. Just go up to whatever stall you fancy and order their food and take back to...More
If you want to taste fresh and inexpensive fruits and vegetables, this is the place. Two pineapples for $1.00. Roses- 2 dozen for $2.00. The food stalls downstairs are reasonable and there is a smoothie stall upstairs which makes great fresh drinks for $1.00. Be...More

Very cheap eats here. Had a huge plate of food with a juice/smoothie for $2. Was delicious. I would highly recommend. A good amount of locals here as well. Great spot to pick up some food to-go as well.
Oh how I love a market! This one reminded me of so many of the Central American markets we have visited. Lots of stands selling prepared foods, meats, and fruits and vegetables. Unique to Quito were stands selling every type of potato you can imagine....More
