This a must-see in Bogotá. You cannot miss the aisles of fruits and vegetables along this local market. As early as 4 AM, the vendors start selling their goods -- flowers, local garments, and even breakfast. I can still savor my tinto with an almojábana......More

It is definitely better to go on the earlier side, especially of you are going on a Sunday. But you must check out the flower and herb markets on Thursdays. Also fruits stands are unbelievably fun, and you can always ask for samples.
