When you have enough time in Bogotá, on Sunday, you can go to Usaquén flea market. Personally I find the interesting part of the market is not the market him self. But its the charme around neighborhood. There are plenty of nice restaurants and cafes, but also some interesting stores.

Super local market with artisan crafts, food, plants, clothing, jewelry, etc. A little bit of everything. Lots of food places along with way as well. This is a great weekend 1/2 day event. Not too big, but not too small to not make the visit worth it.

This is a lovely flea market in a lovely part of town. But, I had my bag stolen there. Admittedly, I was stupid and put it down for a split second. If you go, do not bring anything valuable and I would recommend wearing a money belt. It's crowded and there are many opportunities for thieves.

This is the best street fair/flea market/whatever I've ever been to, ever. And I've been 6 times now. It never gets old. If you like art, jewelry, chotskies, clothing, music, or just good food - GO!!

At the top of the hill, by the school, is the main part of the market, but the part down by the park, along the street, is the best part, and there are more vendors down there. You can find everything there - hammocks, baby shoes, musical instruments, coca leaf tea, calendula soaps, art, etc etc etc...

Over by the mall (at the end of the street) is another portion of the market. There is a lady who makes stuff out of bamboo there at great prices, and another lady sells coffee and makes Virgin Mary dolls out of corn husks. It's amazing.

The food - first of all, Usaquén is the gastronomy capital of Bogotá. I highly recommend most of the restaurants, especially 14 Inkas. Best. Ceviche, EVER. Second, the street food at the market is great. There are always people selling grilled corn, in the converted parking lot, there is a vendor that sells cupcakes and chocolate covered strawberries. Up on the hill, you can usually find food trucks, fresh fruit, and other sweets. Sweet Cacao is a chocolate vendor who is there sometimes - AMAZING chocolates. Also Late Mi Chocolate has been there every time I've been. Try the chocolate covered nuts and bananas. Everyone will give you samples :)

If you want to see live music, hang around the park by the church. Many times singers will come from the coasts and do salsa. People dance in the streets. It's great. Other musicians can be found along the street with the vendors.

Tips:
You don't need to speak Spanish, but know your numbers.

Point - ask "Cuántos hay?" (how much?) - and remember if you look like a tourist, they've upped the price. Haggle. They will make a deal with you.

If you need to differentiate between several things, point and say "este" (this).

Bring cash - most vendors don't accept cards.

We made sure to go to the market with a very open-ended timing. I thought my boyfriend would want to leave after an hour, but we both enjoyed the quality and variety of the stalls so much we would walk a while, stop and relax with a beer, walk a while, stop and relax with some food. Etc. the items are not just trinkets and cheap toys/fake handicrafts, like many touristy markets I’ve been to. Of course there is some of that, but they really have variety and many quality goods! I bought a lot... also the sellers are not usually aggressive. I find that VERY refreshing compares to other areas of the world. They will happily accept - “no thanks, just looking” as a response and many of the more artisan craft stalls seem genuinely proud that you found their items worth buying or even just complimenting. I knew I would enjoy the market, from all the wonderful reviews. I did not expect the quality, friendliness, and cleanliness of the area or that my boyfriend would be equally impressed with a half day of shopping.

Well I was pleasantly surprised with this place, I have been to bogota a number of times and had never even heard or thought of this area. Sunday is a the day to go, with a lot of street sellers, selling everything you might want as a tourist, but there are a huge number of restaurants for those who are not in the city in a Sunday. But if you here on Sunday this is a must at least once to visit this place. Next time I am in this city on Sunday I will def be returning. Hours are from 8am - 6 pm.

We came hoping to see cool, unique products from local artisans, but it ended up being booth after booth of seemingly mass produced products that just weren't that nice. If we had known, we probably would have skipped the flea market. That said, Usaquen is a really cool neighborhood and well worth exploring one day. Lots of great restaurants and we saw some galleries and shops too!

The market was great, more of a craft market than a flea market! The traders are very enthusiastic, keen to talk about the crafts, but refreshingly un-pushy. It is therefore a very pleasurable experience. There are also some good cafes and an amazing 'Galeria Indigena' shop close by the market, where I also bought jewellery and souvenirs from different areas.
