Cost of living in Quito. Update on farmer market Ofelia prices in Quito, Ecuador. March 2013.
walked to the farmer's market this afternoon with $20 in my packet. I spent $13
and here is my bounty:
middle size papayas $2
two pounds of black tart grapes $2.50
than one kilo of small sweet tomatoes 50 cents
red sweet peppers, middle size 50 cents
fruits and veggies that I bought were Ecuadorian grown.
If you do your shopping in supermarkets only,
your grocery bill will be high, not as high as in US, but close enough.
