Fantastic food market!
Jun 2021 • Family
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!

Amazing Market!
Nov 2020 • Friends
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.

Local market - very interesting
Jan 2020
This is the market of the locals. A great place to see what the locals buy and eat. Many fruits that i did not know before. The area of the flowers is especially beautiful. We, a family of 4, went alone without a guide and the market felt safe.

one of the most popular market places in Bogotá, its most striking product is the flower trade. You can find a variety of flowers either as a gift or decoration for your home.

Interesting tour to see local culture
Feb 2020
Seeing the fruit and flower market is pretty impressive. I didn't know Colombia was the second largest exporter of flowers in the world just behind Holland. Some of the varieties are not seen in the US. Fruits and vegetables are unique to Colombia and they have a tasting area you can experience them in.

Cool market, a little sketchy area
Oct 2019 • Family
This market is in a sketchy neighborhood so don’t walk here. Lots of beautiful meat and produce. We walked around with a crying baby and stuck out like a sore thumb. Never felt unsafe within the market but wouldn’t explore the neighborhood. Tight little corners and walkways makes it had with a stroller, FYI.

This market is both indoors for food and outdoors for flowers
Feb 2020
My initial impression of the market was OK; it wasn't until we went outside and saw all the flowers that I was happier in making the visit to the market. We also went across the street to a couple of other flower and food markets to get the full experience.

Wonderful

A colourful and wonderful market full of fruit and veg that you don’t see anywhere else in the world. Some of the stall holders were welcoming and happy to try to understand my limited Spanish, others not so much.
The fish and meat section also has a vast variety of foods. Recommend stopping to try the fresh Arepas.

Marvelous display of fresh fruits, vegetables, and flowers
Feb 2020
This is an authentic city produce market. If that's your thing, be sure to visit. There are a small restaurants where you can grab a bite to eat, also.
