Latacunga Shopping: 2 reviews and 2 photos
the mercado central is full of locals
Latacunga's market is one of Ecuador's most authentic. In fact, there are few tourists shopping here. It's colorful and blessed with a nice setting amongst the provinces stunning mountains. It's a place where locals come to buy their necessities as well as have something to eat.
What to buy: Don't expect a lot of fancy crafts or typical tourist ponchos. They sell what they know locals will buy so you'll see plenty of jeans and CD/DVDs. There is also a huge selection of produce.
What to pay: Be careful what you choose fruit-wise as things out of season or not grown locally can be more expensive than you planned. We bought some delicious if somewhat expensive cherimoyas.
Directions: At the northern end of Avenue Amazones.
Theme: Food and Drink
