The Ecuador Chronicles - 2009-005
 
Hungry in Quito;
              There are a Lot of Options;
                           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.
 
Quality, Cordiality and Convenience - It is True
 
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.
 
Visiting Quito - Take Some Fruit Back to the Hotel for a Snack
 
There is every kind of meat:  Beef, Pork, Lamb, Chicken, Sausage.
 
Fresh Meat
 
And Chicken
 
The Sausage Looks Good - But I Agree with that Old English Saying:
"Sausage is More Enjoyable if You Don't Give Thought to How it is Made"
 
Potatoes are of course native to South America - there are so many types; even the french fries taste better in Quito.
 
Potatoes on Display - and maybe some Yucca
 
Fresh seafood and shellfish from the Pacific Coast are always available, also fresh Tilapia.  Shrimp and Tilapia are both major export products for Ecuador.
 
Fresh Fish and Shrimp - The Price is Right
 
And Don't Forget to check out the
Vegetables, Herbs, Spices and Flowers
 
Veggies and Herbs
 
Fresh flowers are also a major export product for Ecuador; many of the fresh flowers on sale at your local Kroger of Publix are from Ecuador - take a look at the label.
 
Flowers on Display
 
Roses - Recently a Dollar a Dozen
 
If it is fresh, and grown in Ecuador you will more than likely find it at the Mercado Central de Quito.  There is even a restaurant - hot meals about $1.50.  Visit the market when you come to Quito.
