The whole main square (Parque Calderon) of Cuenca is lined with stands selling traditional sweets, and a lot of non-traditional sweets. We asked a vendor which were the most traditional, and sampled some fruit-based sugary concoctions, coconut candy, and quesadillas which in this manifestation are sweet turnovers filled with a cheese. All 10 zillion stands seem to offer pretty much the same fare. Everything is displayed open air. We didn’t see any flies buzzing around, but there were a fair number of bees taking advantage of the offerings, so we tried to dig the sweets we purchased out from lower layers. Several vendors had TVs set up. They were watching the news when we saw them, but I’m guessing they may have had something to do with the Copa Americana soccer tournament going on in Chile.
