Flea Market, Bogota

Calle 120/Carrera 5 | Usaquen Village, Bogota, Colombia

Every sunday is the flea market in this residential neighbourhood with lots of colonial charm. A nice area to spend a relaxed sunday and buying jewellery, crafts, foods, clothes, souvenirs and much more. In the same area are plenty of different nice cafes, bars and restaurants.

The easiest way to get there (or elsewhere in Bogota) is by taxi. The system is very simple and user friendly - they all have to drive with the taximeter. Insist on it or get out of the cab again. Normally they have in the pocket behind the driver seat a list with all the rates.
