  • I am a lover of food, and to best place to test the range of fruit that has Colombia. There are gastronomic tours of fruit which charge about 50 dlls, I gave myself the task of touring the market on my own and one jobs, sold me a fruit of each, where they stripped me, cut and gave on a plate, end up paying less than 7 dlls, one experiences more delicious in my life.

  • 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.
