“Paloquemao” market tour - Experience the smells and flavors of the Colombian countryside.
The favors of Colombia are better experienced when you see the shapes of the fruits, when you taste the sweetness of a juice, when you smell the many herbs, and all of this can be enjoyed as soon as you set foot inside a typical local market. Since before sunrise trucks full of amazing products from the countryside flood the local markets of the city, like the Paloquemao market.
Colombia has a privileged location in the Tropic with a wide variety of climates. Bogotá´s plateau and the areas surrounding it allow for the growth of all kinds of different products. At the Paloquemao market, with over 50 years of history, get to know the meaning of the words: “product of Colombia”. All kinds of different markets are gathered here. Fruits, vegetables, medicinal herbs, flowers, fish, poultry, meats, seafood, and prepared foods in one spectacular cornucopia of colors smells and flavors.
Our tour is led by a professional bilingual tour guide that has great knowledge of the market and will lead you through the maze taking you to the best places in tune with your personal interests. Go to the market in your own private transport that will pick you up at your Hotel or place of stay and will drop you off in the market, and then take you back to your place of stay.
