Market shopping in Otavalo
- Sort by:
Visitors who get up before the sun are rewarded with Saturday morning’s animal market. While you might have little use for screaming piglets or a lethargic cow, it’s certainly worth visiting. Observe the subdued bargaining over a fresh empanada de queso (cheese turnover) from a hillside vendor. Cross the bridge at the end of Colón and follow the crowds to get to the market, which is a kilometer out of town, west of the Panamericana in the Viejo Colegio Agrícola.
