  • It is the place where you can find a variety of products in the Colombian countryside in everyday life in Bogota, fruits in an unimaginable variety and even a section of crafts. To get there you can take the Transmilenio from the race 30 and get off at the station Paloquemao. the taxi is another option since this service in Bogota is very economical; If you decide the transmilenio, you must be careful with your items during the journey, and to leave the station.

  • 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.
