Exposición Artesanal del Parque El Ejido
Without a doubt the most popular park in Quito is the Parque El Ejido. Every Saturday and Sunday, from very early in the morning, artists and craftspeople from every corner of the country, meet in the surroundings of the historic arch, on the edge of the park, to display a variety of different products reflecting their creativity and talent. Normally the items on offer here include paintings, silverware, crafts, clothes, sculptures, music and even the popular tattoos, all at affordable prices. Tourists often visit this park and even though there are no translators around, vendors manage to demonstrate their products and prices.
Saturdays and Sundays in El Ejido are alive with vendors selling their handmade artesanias to tourists. Bargaining is encouraged and expected. If you are in Quito over the weekend, it is not to be missed.
