Visit the most important and colorful Indian Markets of the Ecuadorian highlands. There is a unique and different one each day of the week.

 

All markets are always a lively colorful scene, and the Indian communities come from the surrounding mountain villages to display their goods and exhibit their agricultural products.

 

Here are an overwhelming variety of handicrafts like: wool textile mills, native Indian clothes, good carvings, fruits and even animals are exhibited. Most of the Indians still wear their distinctive traditional dress, and they have not lost their tribal identity.

 

It is common to see bartering as a trade way, as well as the colors of the scenery.
