Plaza Bolívar Turns into a Peasant Market

About once every two months, Plaza Bolivar, Colombia's center of government, experiences a radical makeover and turns into a Mercado Campesino, o Peasant Market. Peasants from all over Colombia come with their fruits and vegetables, jams and jellies, meats and even handicrafts.
