Chillogallo Market is nestled between mountains amid many apartment buildings, stores, and commercial establishments. There are no big signs but everyone in El Sur knows how to get here. This is mostly an outdoor market serving the community with hundreds of vendors and thousands of customers. Here you will find fresh produce, meat, some clothing and some groceries. Oh, yes! Many, many small animals to eat or keep as a pet.

Mayorista is HUGE - Acres of indoor and outdoor stalls, warehouses, hundreds of trucks of all sizes, and, of course, thousands of people. Small and large quantities of produce and groceries can be purchased here at prices much lower than anywhere in Quito.
