Quito Shopping Overview

Location:
Ecuador, Quito

shopping in Quito

A city of two million inhabitants, Quito has a wide selection of shops and markets that between them sell almost everything you’ll need while staying here, whether short term or longer term.

If price is not so much of an issue, Quito’s malls can provide a great variety of different products. They are the location for foreign chain clothing stores, large supermarket chains, fancy electronics and computing stores and legal CD and DVD stores.

Those who want to shop more cheaply can hit up local markets, where clothing, food and other household goods can be bought at a fraction of the price than in the malls.

In general, imported products, whether exotic food items, decent wines or electronic goods, will be significantly more expensive due to the import duties placed on them. If you want to buy cheap, as a general rule, buy Ecuadorian.

The city has a number of delicatessens for luxury meats and cheese products. El Español is an example of such a shop. Organic produce can be purchased in a few different parts of the city, including at the organic market in the La Floresta neighborhood on Friday mornings.
