Zumbagua has a vegetable market big enough to attract a few tourists. The town even has a small hotel or two. Zumbagua is midway between the high Andes and the coastal lowlands; its market, supplied by both climatic zones, creates a kind of ecological collision, with purple mountain potatoes and bumpy red oca tubers vying for space with tropical pineapples and blocks of coarse brown sugar.
