One of the oldest markets in the city, after 120 years it continues to maintain the charm, tradition, and taste of traditional markets. It has 123 food and merchandise stands, as well as spaces for herbal cleanses. Visitors can taste traditional dishes like mote (hominy), llapingachos (potato tortillas), yahuarlocro soup, chicken broth, hornado (roast pig), and invigorating juices made from fruits and vegetables at the market’s food court. This market’s charm lies in the fact that the vast majority of its merchants have continued their families’ legacies by continuing to set up shop in the same place generation after generation.

 

The market also offers its visitors banking and pharmacy services, free internet, as well as traditional art and souvenirs.

 

It is located on Rocafuerte and Chimborazo, three blocks beyond El Carmen Alto or El Arco de la Reina (the Queen’s Arch). Along the way, visitors can pass by the church of San Roque.
