Right in apartment building where I live there is convenience store, family owned. Few blocks in other direction from my place there are little pharmacy where I buy my high blood pressure medication - cheapest price in Quito! and liquor store with $9 per bottle Chilean and Argentinian wines. On my way there I pass a bakery, few other tiendas and many little restaurants with set up lunch menus (almuerzos).
Big weekends farmer market is less then 10 min walk from my house and shopping mall is less than 30 min walk.
Considering the weather is always mild and "walk-able" in Quito - its exercise and convenience of living without car rolled into one.
