The Otavalo market is one of the most famous markets in South America. Even though you can enjoy the craft market any day of the week, the best day to visit is Saturday — the busiest market day. My favourite part of the market was the food section where one can enjoy the colours of local produce. Also, I just loved the way Otavaleñas (as the women from Otavalo are called) dress: with long straight dark-coloured skirts, white embroidered shirts and strings of shiny beads around their necks. The Otavalo market is definitely a must if you’re travelling around Ecuador!
