Good question. In all the small and large towns of Ecuador, you will probably be able to find a local “market” where street vendors roll out a blanket and sell their produce. It is MUCH cheaper to buy your food (meats, vegetables, fruits) this way.
For instance, in Quito there is a market just north of the airport and also one near the “Y” open on weekends.
