338 OVER TRAIL AND THROUGH JUNGLE IN ECUADOR MILLER'S ROW IN THE MARKET-PLACE OF RIOBAMBA In the public markets the different commodities will often be found segregated in districts. In Riobamba, the center of a cereal region, the display of flours was rather note worthy. Flour is made of wheat, barley, corn, and peas in Ecuador. AN ECUADOREAN POTTERY EMPORIUM Much of the ware for sale is displayed out on the street. At this booth the owner is featuring the heavy red pottery and the cheap basket-work of the region. Clay suitable for pottery and tiling is found everywhere in Ecuador and put to a serviceable use.
