Shopping at a farmers' market in Quito. Ecuador 2014.

My North Quito apartment is strategically located. I can walk to the shopping mall, to the neighborhood supermarket and I have not one but two farmers markets within walking distance from my apartment building. 
Ecuadorian farmer markets are not regulated as much as in nanny states, so besides produce they sell fish, poultry, pork, eggs, farmer cheese and other perishable food - without refrigeration! and consumers are still alive - imagine that!
Shopping at farmer market and neighborhoods little tiendas is a lot of fun and it saves me money.

Here is my shopping at Ofelia farmer market done in August.
I paid $24 for the food listed below

30 eggs                                   
green peas                             
three little limes                      
10 small bananas                  
five apples                             
fish steak - one pound
shelled shrimp  - one pound
pork - two pounds       
farmer cheese - 500 gr
