Located in one of the most popular areas of the capital, “La Mariscal”, this interesting market is where you can find artisanal products from all over the country. From the most typical handmade weavings made by Otavalo´s indigenous to the Guayasamin´s artist replicas paintings. Including Tagua colorful jewelry and so many typical goods.
