It is definitely better to go on the earlier side, especially of you are going on a Sunday. But you must check out the flower and herb markets on Thursdays. Also fruits stands are unbelievably fun, and you can always ask for samples.

My favourite part of this market was seeing all the beautiful flowers and the amazing variety of fruits. Possibly some of the most impressive selection of fruits I have ever seen! Easy to walk round by yourself or part of a food tour.

We're Mexican, which means we walk markets, which we proceeded to do all over Colombia, and Bogota's Paloquemao is the Big Enchilada! The amazing variety of fresh fruits and vegetables, eggs, meats, flowers and on and on, put us in mind of Mexico City's La...More
