This semi-carved roast pig greeted us as we entered the Mercado Central in Old Town Quito, Ecuador. I had to take a photo for my pig-roasting friends.
The market is organized into sections for produce, fruits, meat, fish, poultry, etc. This photo of a produce-seller’s stall gives you a feel for the abundance and variety of foods on offer. I couldn’t help but linger by the two stalls selling herbs. They were not as visually appealing as this one, but the co-mingling scents of the many herbs stacked high was an aromatic delight.
The humble spud had it’s own aisle in this market.
That last photo didn’t do justice to the variety of spuds on display so I had to take another photo so you could appreciate the detail 🙂
