Bogotá, Colombia: Part 1 (Plaza de Mercado Paloquemao )

Our idea of a perfect morning would most likely involve breakfast in bed, hot cacao and a wander through a local food market. So after reading about Bogotá's Plaza de Mercado Paloquemao, we couldn't wait to get there and experience true tropical fruit paradise...

In terms of fresh produce, Paloquemao has just about everything you could imagine... plus plenty of new, amazing fruits to discover! We spent our morning dreamily wandering around the stalls, buying ingredients and feeling like we'd been thrown into a wonderful explosion of colour.

As well as all the fruit and vegetables, there are also a few small health stalls selling things like bee pollen, Aloe Vera leaves, moringa, quinoa and more! As well as our bags of fruit and veggies, we picked up some local herbs and fresh chamomile for making tea.

If you're in Bogotá, we definitely recommend heading here to see the incredible displays and do some people watching over a fresh juice. Our favourite combination is banana and passion fruit! The market is located on Calle 19, #25 - 04.
