  • I like to go where to sell souvenirs and crafts and certainly this place has everything from bracelets to blankets. They are not cheap poor quality handicrafts, it seems to me that there are many products of well-crafted and very beautiful. The place is clean, tidy and people who they serve very nice, bring cash and don't forget pesie rebate. This place is a stop of the city tour bus that takes in Carolina.

  • The market is open every day and admission is free. There are about a hundred posts. Great place to buy crafts, whether fabrics, hats, blankets, alpaca, silver jewellery, souvenirs from the main tourist sites of Ecuador, among others. Excellent prices, bring cash, there are bargain and a shame have gone the last day of the trip. By way of example I got a scarf from alpaca that elsewhere in the city pay ten dollars there it for four dollars. Same thing happened to me with magnets and crafts in wood. I highly recommend it.

  • Fun place for shopping. Good variety of Ecuadorian souvenirs. Able to practice a bit of bartering too!
  • Handicraft,cloth and many home decoration wood craft as well as leather goods.very interesting market of Quito with tourist attraction.
  • Not quite as extensive nor quite as many options as the market in Otavalo, but nice and friendly. Good for last-minute gift shopping for tourists.
