Based on guide books and reviews I was really looking forward to this trip. After a 4 hour ride (it only took 2 hours to get back) we arrived at the market. There was a lot of, imo, jjunk. One nice thing there though were llama scarves - warm, thick, non-shedding, and $6 a piece. Definitely bargain for what you want but also set limits and know exactly what your end product will be. I think that the places in Quito itself Mercado Les Artisaneles) has just as nice items and doesn't require a long trip. This is on my "wouldn't do it again" list.
