  • All the rave reviews raised my expectations, but this was a very average flea market with rather mundane handicrafts for sale. Saw lots of nicer stuff in other places in Colombia.  more »
  • For some Sunday afternoon is tedious, if that happens to you go to the flea market and delights your senses, see, eat, listen, and speak all in one place. A great plan for taxis.

  • I would stress that this market is for kinds Colombian averages. There is greater cleaning products, less pollution, all keep and clean. It gives a feeling of greater security and is complemented by the Centro Comercial La Hacienda that looks wonderful as any trade in Europe. Cleanliness, low piracy. I would say that there are many contrasts with the Candelaria area, even though the latter is much more crowded and prices of crafts and other gastronomic products are truly cheaper

  • From 9 on Sunday. Best visited early before the crowds arrive! You'll find everything from bags and jewellery to pieces of amber and model dragons! It was great to talk to the artisans about their work. I couldn't resist trying some lechona, which is a traditional Colombian dish of slow-cooked pork stuffed with rice and beans - at 10k pesos I got a heaping plate and wished I hadn't had as big a breakfast! Occasionally a vendor accepts credit card but as a rule most of them take cash. As a solo female I encountered no issues with safety though be aware that surge pricing will be in force when you call an uber, and because of the ciclovia it may mean traffic on your way home.
  • Interesting place full of unique selections.
  • Open on Sundays with lots of original artesenias, not just for tourists and plenty of dining options.
  • Great place to visit
  • Incredibly charming place. Perfect for a Sunday walk.
