  • At first sight a mess, but the location and picturesque: fruits, vegetables, grain, meat, medicinal herbs ... a big fair. On the upper floor spaces that sell local food. Worth to visit

  • This market is very popular with the locals as well as tourists. You will find all either beef, chicken, fish, pork, mutton, fresh fruits and vegetables. On the second floor there is still a kiosk that offers food, drinks, etc. A Tip If you decide to eat at one of these restaurants, the price n, if not indicated, always ask before how this coute(Quanto es?), so you can avoid paying too much knowing in advance how much it costs you. Better yet take the time to watch locals what they buy and how much it pays so you will know how much is really what you want. This is an excellent place to get your food at very good prices. A visit because it is very informative. Claude Gagnon

  • It is a market where you can buy fruits, vegetables, meats and more. It is the exquisite pork hornado typical of the place. Very good fresh produce.

  • Great place to buy food and stuff for your household. Everything you need you will get there. Best of it are the small restaurants and food stands at the second floor.
  • Fascinating look at Ecuador, how vegetables/fruits/meats (and other stuff like prepared food, simple household wares, etc) are sold. It's not slick. It's not beautiful in a "Wholefoods" but what you buy is just as tasty and a lot, lot cheaper. Individual (usually indigenous women) work individual stalls on the bottom floor with a huge variety of fruits and vegetables. The ladies will often give you a sample of a fruit, tell you what it's called, give you ripe (maduro) products if you want to eat them on the spot, say. 10 de agosto is also a great place to photograph - be nice and ask if you can take a pic - some will say no and others don't mind. A tip is always welcome. Second floor has prepared food - almuerzos, batidos (milkshakes), etc. Cheap, tasty and likely as sanitary as any other restaurant in Cuenca.
  • This is a must-visit location even if you only have a little time to spare. You can see some different foods that you may not be accustomed to.
  • Lots of lunch shops but not a huge variety (spit roasted pig, encebolladas - tuna soup, chicken soup, chicken in various forms). Fruit and vegetable section has a rat problem. As with most markets the best and freshest produce is usually sold by the ladies outside the market with wheelbarrows and only one or two types of fruit and veg.
  • Shop where the locals shop! 5 avocados for a dollar!
