O Mercado de Machachi é um mercado que nem é todo calçado. Podemos chamar de mercado "raiz" porque é um mercado de um bairro afastado do centro de Quito e totalmente popular. Só desbravadores vão lá. Na parte de frutas e verduras os vendedores ficam lado a lado com seus produtos. Batatas de todos os tipos, cheiro verde gigante, brócolis imensos, repolhos porrudos. Dizem que é porque a terra de Machachi é muito enriquecida pelo solo vulcânico e pelas aguas ricas em minerais que descem dos vulcões. Bem, mas o mercado é um pardieiro. Chegamos na “Praça da Alimentação”. Mesas coletivas com bancos. Bem ao lado de onde são preparados os alimentos. Os Cuys são assados em pedações de madeira. Custam US 15. O Cuy assado chegou na nossa mesa inteiro para as fotos. Depois foi dividido para partilharmos os três. Nós dosi e o amigo que nos levou lá. Couro crocante. Carne macia. Sabor único. Comi até um pedaço do rim e parte inferior da cabeça. Acompanha batatas cozidas em um molho amarelado e repolho cortado. Coloquei o molho de ají para apimentar. Imperdível! O Cuy comido neste mercado. Não se compara em nada com os dos restaurantes em sabor. Desbrave!

De los mercados andinos mas completos de la sierra Ecuatoriana, la variedad de verduras tuberculos y frutas es algo increíble como sus productos como el queso y harinas pre elaboradas se logra de muchos nuevos sabores, y que mejor comer algo tradicional en sus puestos de comida.

Dieser authentischer lokaler Markt bietet eine große Auswahl von Obst und Gemüse aus der Region. Die Ware wird ausgesprochen schön präsentiert. Interessant sind auch die Imbissstände mit Spezialitäten wie locro de papas (Kartoffelsuppe mit Avocado und Käse), yaguarlocro (Kartoffel-Blutwurst Suppe) oder Spanferkel.

Comida hecha por las mujeres lugareñas con un sabor y excepcional calidad; permite escojer entre especialidades aunque recomiendo el Hornado de Chancho con Mote y jugo de Mora.

Tenes que pedir rebaja porque si sos extranjero te van a cobrar mas caras las frutas o verduras, al final no te das cuenta xq te cobran más pero sigue siendo barato pero luego te das cuenta que no es el precio, son gente tan humilde que al final uno paga de más

Dar un paseo en el mercado Central es una gran experiencia para la vista y el olfato. Aunque no está muy guapo, se puede encontrar gran variedad de colores, texturas y olores que marcan un recuerdo para toda la vida.
