  • The market is a whole block long, there is a small shop after another. The offered goods are the usual things: jewelry, sweaters, shirts, blankets, blouses, chocolate, coffee, magnets, backpacks, coca, etc. The price is probably cheaper than in Otavalo, of course depending on the negotiating skills. Across through the intersection at the northern end there are a few shops with some other things (carpets, jackets) again.
