  • If love the kitchen and like a festival of vegetables, fruits and fish... This is the site. Paloquemao is big, focus on the main part which is the entrance of the Virgen del Carmen. Talk to traders who have inherited their parents trade jobs. It is a safe place, a bit congested but worthwhile. My advice, not so much haggle prices. They work very hard. Pay them what ask because of all forms is very cheap.

  • Very good presentation. Variety of products. A site that is worth knowing. There are a few stalls selling delicious fruit salad.

  • lo mejor de lo mejor
  • Busy, large market. Mainly fresh produce, meats, fish. Great experience with the amazing range of fruit that Colombia has to offer. Was only a $3USD uber from town.
  • An amazing array of fruits, vegetables, meats, seafood, flowers and packaged goods. Must see for the adventurous traveller who would like to wander off the beaten path a bit
  • There's a shop where you can find diferent types of spicy specias. Really good.
  • This market is so cool!!! Great choices of fruits. Good quality. Have a Poker beer with the locals after work (from about 16:30) in one of the bars with colombian music.
