What is it?

It is an interesting indigenous market with 7 plazas including the early morning animal market. Is probably the biggest indigenous market from the highlands happening on thursdays. All varieties of stuff and goods for the local consumers, and a small souvenir plaza too with things from Otavalo. Great for observing "lost" living traditions.
