Quito Shopping

Mercado de Santa Clara

Updated 06/22/2011

Fodor's Review

You can lose yourself among the stalls at the Mercado de Santa Clara, in the New City at the corner of Calle Versalles and Calle Marchena. At this traditional market you'll find fruits and vegetables piled in geometrical patterns, bundles of dried and fresh herbs, barrels of grains, and huge bunches of freshly cut flowers. You can listen to a musician play soulful tunes on the accordion or light a candle to the Virgin Mary at the shrine tucked between the vendors' stalls.
