Two long rows of outdoor stalls sell t-shirts, Guatemalan and Ecuadorian handicrafts and clothing, small ceramic ocarinas (a small musical wind instrument), and handmade jewelry. The atmosphere here is much more open than at the Mercado Central, which can be a bit claustrophobic. You might be able to bargain prices down a bit, but bargaining is not a traditional part of the culture here, so you’ll have to work hard to save a few bucks.
