Carrera 80 No. 2 – 51 Bogota, Colombia www.corabastos.com.co OPEN HOURS: 4:00 - 12:00 Daily The largest vegetable, fruit, cereals and grain supply market in Colombia, and the largest we have visited in the world. 420,000 square meters with 57 warehouses and 6,500 vendors. A daily movement of 12.400 tonnes of produce. Visiting Corabastos makes you ask how there could possibly be a hungry person in this world. There is SO MUCH FOOD! If you can, the best time to go is about 7:00am. Corabastos is not tourist friendly, so never go alone. Also keep in mind to dress down so as not to attract attention from the occasional pick pocketer; keep your wallet in safe place and hide your camera when not shooting. If you actually intend on buying food, remember this is a whole sale market. The smallest amounts sold are individual crates or boxes. You can hire a porter for a few thousand pesos to walk with you and bring your boxes along for the journey. If
