Let´s go to the market!

The market is THE place to experience food! Walk and taste the biggest local market in Bogotá in the company of a foodie insider. Open a wonderful gate into the exhuberant universe in Colombia’s patterns, colors, textures, sounds and of course, flavors.  It has quickly become a top culinary experience for food fanatics, enthusiasts and eager travellers that enjoy an adventure in site.

What you’ll live: Prepare yourself to have a wonderful conversation along the market aisles; we take you to the highlights while you taste and become acquainted. You will for sure savour Paloquemao. We’ll treat you to very diverse tastings: expect lots of new flavours to add to yor collection, your food album will have new unique entries.

Our adventure:
  • You may not be able to take the array of flowers home, but you will definetly want to. Experience and photograph freshly cut flowers from the inland, the tropics and the jungle in small stalls that rise up proudly.
  • Amasijos are a ritual you do not want to miss. Take part of a Paloquemao tradition: sit down and sample local artisanal breads with a fresh avena.
  • Visit and enjoy the real jewels of this promenade: fruits of all shapes, sizes, textures and smells, local produce from all over the country, wonderfull “puestos” of specialized nature like herb, corn, juice stalls, dairies, and pintoresque restaurants.
  • As a part of a foodie tour, you do get to savour the local experience of wonderful street and traditional food. Grab fork and enjoy tamales, fritanga or lechona.
  • Right after the promenade, and alter a small drive, experience the best traditional Ajiaco in one of Bogotá’s local cooking schools. Save some room for dessert…

Who will enjoy it: Everyone will enjoy it, specially foodies and travellers with an adventurous palate, fruit lovers, nature lovers and food photographers. It’s a foodie’s paradise.

What you should bring: It is imperative to have a light breakfast or no breakfast at all: you will taste lots of food and a willing palate. Bring comfy shoes, a jacket and a camera.
