This colourful market has fresh fruit, vegetables, meat and wonderful food and fruit juices. We had a $4 pork, salad and cheese and potato balls plate between us. Absolutely delicious!

If oyu want to try typical southern Ecuadorian food, just go there. You must work an appettite too, because the servings are very generous.

Found several good bargains. Wish that I had more time to shop there. Only had a few hours but sure could have made several more purchases. Wonder if anyone has an online store.

Definitely come here for an authentic South American farmer's market experience. There are so many fruit and vegetable choices, as well as meats and cheeses. You will also find all kinds of household items here. Lunch is inexpensive and tasty.
