This place is the LARGEST and one of the cheapest fruit markets i've ever been to. It has the largest flower vendors area i've ever seen and the flowers are insanely cheap. Well worth a trip out and give yourself at least 1-2 hours to check out the beauty and taste all the fruit and food there

I had a really enjoyable hour and a half or so in Paloquemao Market. We had a tour actually and sampled loads of exotic fruit, bread, coffee and pastries The colour, cacophony of noise and the smells of fresh fruit and vegetables as well as the flower market made it a serious assault on the senses!
But you don't need a tour really. Its big, yes, but it is easily navigable without a guide. In fact, most people will visit it this way.
I thought it was wonderful to get a slice of everyday life in Bogota's biggest Market.

This market is very cool and local. Foods are Colombian with lots of variety. The fruits and vegetables are so colorful and smell great. This is a must see market in Bogota!

The market is fascinating though a little overwhelming at first. It’s located in a rough area, and while getting there by Uber is easy, getting picked up isn’t as the pick up point is unclear given the sheer size of the market.
However it is well worth the visit. More fruits you’ve never seen or heard of! It’s a working market, not a tourist site. There are a number of food stalls there too. We had some delicious tacos.

The market was large with a wide variety of products being sold. We tried a bunch of different fruits and avocados which was fun.

I love fruit so I like to check out fruit markets. This is not special at all. If you’ve been to fruit markets in SE Asia then you will find this just a waste of time.

Fruits are overpriced (at least if your Spanish is as bad as mine!) and again it’s nothing special.

I must say I went very late so flowers were non existence. My friend went at 6 AM (I know crazy!!) With a tour and he claims it was really nice!so maybe if you go supper early for the flowers it will be nice but I would never lose my sleep for this.

When you go here, don't eat too much if you have dinner plans! The fruit and veggies are so fresh and so sweet that I could have eaten here all day! It was a fantastic different experience.

Fantastic market for all kinds of food. It was easy to get to, and pretty enormous to walk through. We lived in Asia for many years, so this reminded us of the “wet markets” and fruit and vegetable markets we used to go to there. Some of the highlights were the fresh juices, the snacks and the myriad of exotic fruits, many of which we had not tried before. And literally everyone we encountered I spoke to were incredibly nice, even though almost no one there I spoke English.. It’s definitely a great way to spend 2 to 3 hours!

We spent a few hours wondering around the market, and it was so big we almost got lost twice! There are so many great little shops, where the locals showcase their goods. So many flowers, fruits, vegetables, and other items available.
