After hotel pickup in an air-conditioned vehicle, travel to the Central Mayorista, 40 blocks chock-full of stalls selling exotic fruits, vegetables, herbs and meats. It’s the biggest food market in Medellín, and it’s so big that you could easily get lost. It’s a good thing, then, that this 3-hour tour comes with an expert local guide who leads you through the magnificent market, pointing out interesting things along the way and foodstuffs that don’t exist back home. Your guide is there to help you speak with the vendors, sample some food, and learn about the history of the market.
The next stop is the cozier Minorista market, a smaller venue where you can get a sense of how working-class Colombians shop for their food. Northwest of El Centro, Plaza Minorista was established in 1984 and boasts over 2,500 stalls. Once again, try samples and ask questions about local herbs and organic produce as the guide takes you around.
The third and final stop on the tour is the Flower Plaza or Placita de Flores, a lovely marketplace packed with colorful and aromatic flowers and herbs. Take some time to look at the beautiful flowers and learn about various plants’ healing properties. After you’ve seen the market, get back in the tour vehicle for drop-off at your hotel or another destination in Medellín.
