Mercado de Iñaquito

The heart and soul of Quito gastronomy

The traditional Iñaquito market is in the north of the city and is one of the largest in Quito. Divided into two sections, the largest is reserved for the numerous stalls and shops, as this is one of the biggest markets in the city. Although not strictly a wholesale market, it isn't uncommon for owners of restaurants and bars to come here in search of seafood or vegetables. It has one of the best reputations in the country and has been open now for over thirty years. In the other section, there are various tables set up for visitors to sample dishes made with local produce. There is a huge amount of choice, but we recommend the meats, the encebollados or the mote con chicharrón. You can also order a tasting menu, which is perfect for filling up on traditional, local cuisine. Ready for a treat?
