Food stuffs and markets in Ecuador
Living in Ecuador means you have to buy things and here you have the advantage of fresh products recently harvested which will make cooking a true pleasure for you. From supermarkets with high quality products and produce sometimes imported to the typical open air markets and fairs, where you find fruits and vegetables recently brought from the field, and these are only some of the options in the most productive and diverse country in the world.


The Ecuadorian Market
Ecuadorian cooking is one of the most varied and delicious in Latin America. In addition to its freshness, the prices of the products are relatively cheap and accessible. There are 197 items that make up the basic family "basket" in Ecuador (agricultural and manufactured products) and according to the last report in July from the National Institute of Statistics and Census (INEC), the basic family basket costs $388.00.

With respect to manufactured products, don't forget to check the expiration dates and production dates, as well as making sure that it is in its original form and the safety seals have not been altered. In the open air fairs and small fruit and vegetable markets you are supposed to bargain, so take advantage of this and practice your smile and your negotiating talents to try to get a discount of .80 cents in your products
