WHY LIVE THIS EXPERIENCE IN COLOMBIA?
Paloquemao Square, in the west of Bogotá, is a traditional part of the city where fresh vegetables and other farm products fill an old abandoned railroad warehouse with color. The square, in operation since 1972, is much more than a marketplace, and attracts Colombian and foreign visitors who find a wide variety of fruit.
Visitors often receive free samples of fruit, such as avocado from Mariquita (Tolima).
In Paloquemao you can find tonkua, a variety of squash that can weigh over 100 pounds.
People from countries like India, Peru, and Mexico come to the square to buy special peppers.
