Although prices are higher, some who can afford them prefer to shop in the supermarkets because foreign brands, local produce and meat products can be found in one location, under one roof. Supermarkets are generally a new phenomenon in Ecuador as the large outdoor markets have long been a way of life for Ecuadorians. Though the outdoor markets still exist, supermarkets have begun to replace them in the bigger cities. Quito, Ecuador. (Supporting image from the project Hungry Planet: What the World Eats)
