Don’t be too disparaged that this market is set up in a car park, it’s not where you are it’s what you sell, right. Which is woollen cloth, ceramics, pre-Columbian reproductions and then more random flea-market-y products, but this is one of Bogota’s largest markets so there are treasures as well as crafts and souvenirs.

The best day to come is Sunday when all the best items are brought out – and surprisingly often sold for less as well?
