    Plaza de Bomboná: don't touch these babies

    betcha can't touch just one

    Though Plaza de Bomboná is not the traditional produce market we might have hoped for and it's not the photogenic South American classic you might be looking for, it is none-the-less a great example of a local market and very interesting in that respect. We went mostly in search of lechona or roast pig but it was fun walking around and checking out the other items for sale. It's largely a place for locals to buy clothes and there's no shortage of this. The funniest I saw was very tight spaghetti-style tank top on a buxom mannequin with a sign saying “no tocar” which means “don't touch.” I couldn't resist taking a photo of it but the girls in the shop on spying me doing it became hysterical.

    ARTESANIAS MERCADO BOMBONA: HANDICRAFTS

    by swesn Written Oct 21, 2007

    This huge market is located in a warehouse like building.

    In one section, there are cheap eateries. What drew my attention were the roast pigs smoking above barbecues. I am sure they are delicious.

    In another section, you can find various Colombian handicrafts, woollies, wooden furniture, etc...
