Otavalo Market is famous for textiles, which are weaved by the local villagers. The largest and most famous market is on a Saturday and during the market's busiest time, a large portion of the town is full to burst with stalls selling textiles, jewellery, dream catchers, leather goods, costumes, clothing, purses, spices and musical instruments. Originally an area focused on farming, Otavalo has a rich volcanic soil. The popularility of the area to tourists, has made tourism it's main industry now, so there are more hotels than in many other towns in Ecuador.
