    Stop: 3 hours
    An guide who has worked with the market since 2015, will connect you with farmers and merchants so that you can learn about their family businesses and community projects such as "Back to the plaza" and "Hello my friend."

Sit down to try a banquet of 20 exotic fruits from different regions of the country. While tasting them, hear about Colombia’s history, present and future from the perspective of the merchants. Learn how to choose, open and prepare Colombian fruits like a pro! Learn about the importance of cleaning, drying and storing the fruit seeds, as well as get some tips for eating healthier, organic and diverse. Finally, you will give a toast for Colombia, the world's fruit reserve, in an exclusive tasting of refreshing juices and fruit extracts.

Maria is delightful :) She is very outgoing and such a joy to spend the day with. Her knowledge about the history of her country, the origins of the market, and the fruits in particular is amazing. She guides you through many diverse fruits - names, uses, etc and each one is worth trying. She is a top-notch guide with an infectious personality! We will be using her again for local cuisine recommendations as well as cooking classes. When our family and friends come to visit, Maria will be our "go to" for this tour, which is a must do when visiting Bogota.

The tour not only highlighted the countless fruits in Colombia, but it also touched on the economic, environmental and social benefits of supporting local farmers. The tour guides were very passionate about the people and process behind the produce. We even met and spoke English with some vendors who were taking English classes provided by the tour company. I highly recommend coming hungry for this tour! If you are still hungry after the tour you can easily get tacos, lechona or soup from surrounding restaurants vendors.
