As a lot of people say, one of the best ways to see a culture is through visiting a local market and trying the foods that the locals eat on a regular basis. But that can be very difficult. Especially in countries without an advanced tourism markets and/or those where you don’t speak the language, like me in Bogota, Colombia.
Bogota’s biggest and most important market is Paloquemao Market, located right in the center of Bogota in the Plaza de Mercado de Paloquemao. The market is large and from afar and looks more like a big factory than a market. It is also extremely busy, with very few tourists.
