San Francisco Plaza

What were they thinking? Where is our indigenous goods market? Am I the only one who thinks this is a waste of space? No wonder the local vendors are upset.

I went by to see this “new and better” market only to find a blank space surrounded by vendors selling cheap Chinese goods. There were only a few vendors selling goods actually made in Ecuador. Instead of finding a variety of handmade goods; tourists find the same thing they can find in WalMart.

I am told all that empty space is to be used for events. There are dozens of places in El Centro alone where festivals can be held, but there is no central location for Ecuadorian goods.
