  • This market on the first floor has stalls are meals there is a part on the side of the escalators that sell hornado, whenever I am going to step basin here, it is the first room on the left... Good taste of the pork meat and other companions... If I travel with someone else took them to eat here and leave happy good food at good prices

  • 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!
