It’s a fun place to visit for cheap souvenirs, but it sure seems like the same merchandise in every stall. How much is really made in Ecuador vs China is debatable. Still, wander through and stock up on inexpensive stuff for family and friends.

MANY small stalls offering products of Ecuador. Gestures worked fine for communicating, and bargaining is easy given that Ecuador uses US currency. Beautiful alpaca scarves, blankets. Much redundancy, but also unique crafts-people; I think I arranged for a custom leather wallet to be ready when I return in a couple of weeks!

All the things you don’t really need! Fun to shop, inexpensive gifts, trinkets, and whatnots! Never accept the first price, it’s a game for the merchants. Just don’t be mercenary in bargaining, this is how the merchants make a living. If you really don’t want it say thank you and walk on by.

It's a tourist market for tourists, so don't expect anything else! We really enjoyed pottering around getting a few bits and pieces, trying chocolate and coffee etc. If you want a bargain, be prepared to haggle as the starting prices aren't cheap, but a nice spot nonetheless, and policed so feels safe.

this was our main stop for souvenirs on the way back from Galapagos. we stayed in the new city on purpose to go the market on the morning of our departure day. Riot of color/texture. All prices negotiable. Cash only. Very inexpensive for visitors from US or western Europe. Same items at the airport will be more than twice the price. Can get anything from chocolate and alcohol to alpaca wool blankets/striped local pants, fuzzy lama toys, jewelry. We did not have time to visit Otavalo, so this was the next best thing. Also, if headed to Galapagos, need to be careful regarding weight limit on the way in, so its a good idea to save this for the last stop on the way home. Do not miss!
