  • This is a nice market.. fresh veggies and whatever kind of foodstuffs you want..
  • My favorite place to visit in Bogota. Plan on getting lost in the labyrinth of different stalls and be sure to bring cash, as there really isn't any easy ATM access here. I always buy the rice and bring it back home with me in my luggage, it's amazing. A little rough around the edges on the outside but we never felt unsafe, especially inside the market.
  • Nice market to buy fruits, vegetables, sea food, meat, poultry, dairy products, among many others. Take the time to eat a typical breakfast. In the parking lot, there are huge amounts of flowers with very affordable prices. A must see place in Bogota
  • It's a nice gallery, you can see and taste mostly of the fruits and vegetables from the andrean region. Also they have traditional restaurants.
  • Variety of exotic fruit and vendors will let you buy individual ones at low costs to try. I recommend going around and trying whatever you aren't familiar with! I did and it was a blast!
