Ecuador Travels – Otavalo Market (3 of 3)

The Otavalo Market is open every day, but the busiest days are Saturdays and Wednesdays when vendors from all over the region come to sell their goods. On these days, the market expands to fill the entire town square and spills out into the surrounding streets.

Despite its popularity, the Otavalo Market has managed to maintain its authenticity and traditional character. Unlike other markets in South America, which have become commercialized and geared towards tourists, the Otavalo Market remains a place where locals come to buy and sell their products. This gives visitors a unique opportunity to experience the rich cultural heritage of the Andean people.
