Otavalo Market has put its city on the map, attracting tourists who’ve heard of the famous market whose origins stretch back to pre-Incan times. This market has maintained its strong roots to its ancient history, making it not only a destination for shopping but for cultural experiences. The locals, Otavalenos, are known for weaving and creating products like blankets, handbags, wall hangings, and scarves. The market takes place every day, but the busiest market day is Saturday, when nearly one third of the town fills with vendors’ stalls selling traditional textiles. Come and browse among the many stalls to find the perfect souvenir to take home.
