Try the Mercado Central
The Mercado Central de Quito, located in the Old Town, has a vast array of Ecuador produced fruits, vegetables, meats, seafood, herbs, spices and flowers. It is noted as "Primer Mercado Saludable" - Formost Healthful Market. The Quito Central Market has won awards for cleanliness.

There are so many types of fruits: Bananas of all descriptions, Oranges, Pineapple, Mango, Papaya, Grapefruit, Kiwi, Grapes, Apples, Strawberrys, Passion Fruit, Star Fruit, Blackberrys, and many more whose names I do not know.

There is every kind of meat: Beef, Pork, Lamb, Chicken, Sausage.

Potatoes are of course native to South America - there are so many types; even the french fries taste better in Quito.
