  • So organized market, all is well rated, for your shopping and have lunch and I imagine for breakfast, delicious local hornado 553, we went twice to eat with my spouse and also the delicious with onions and sell juice and fruits. Very tasty and clean.

  • The market Aug. 10 is located in the historic centre, close to museums and craft fairs. Is a simple market when compared with others that I visited, but it is a great place to taste local dishes, like the Hornado, roast pork with salad, rice and potatoes. Amazing seasoning. How is served may cause estrangement to some people, many feiristas serve the pork with the hands, but I ate and had no problems. It is a short visit, and interesting, have to meet.

  • Great place to eat typical food such as the hornado. In addition you can buy different types of fruits, vegetables, smoothies, etc.

  • A good size fresh squeezed juice for 50 cents. Bring your own cup as their cups are flimsy and no lid. Less trash anyway. One of the few places I find sweet potatoes and avocados with no Seed.
  • It’s a fairly nice, good sized market that sells typical market stuff. I like some of the food vendors up on the second floor for quick snacks and some pretty darn good empanadas.
  • I like this place. Big selection of produce. The meat section is pretty clean by South American standards. Big food court. People are friendly in general.
  • Large farmers market. Lots of fruits and vegetables. A large area with fresh meat.
  • Great place for fruits, veggies, pollo and hornado!

Where to stay in Cuenca

Extremely popular with international visitors and expats, Cuenca features the sizeable range of hotel options you might expect from a renowned tourist destination. Scores of hotels and bed and breakfasts line the streets of the city's old town, many of them occupying historic mansions and homes restored to their former glory. The larger, more upscale hotels in the city center tend to offer onsite restaurants and other amenities, while cheaper hostels feature little more than bunk beds in exchange for much lower rates. However, keep in mind that Cuenca's popularity has a flip side, as the large foreign presence makes for higher prices than elsewhere in Ecuador and also large fluctuations in cost depending on the season.
