Market Square Leticia

As any other Market Square in Colombia, you will find a good variety of fruits, vegetables, herbs and meat. However, here the things change a little bit: much more fish and much less vegetables.

You will also have the opportunity to try some of the most unusual fruits you’ve ever tried or seen, like the deliciously bitter sweet copoasú or the amazing asaí. Off course, it all depends on the season but they usually freeze some for making juices. 

And every Monday, in the right side of the square when facing the pier, the indigenous communities sell their local products. It is a good opportunity to try some typical and delicious dishes like casabe (a local bread made of yucca starch), get some fariña (yucca flour) or the exotic tucupi (a black and spicy sauce, also made of yucca).

Did you know?

The legend says a Colombian soldier fell in love with an Amerindian woman named Leticia and gave her name to the settlement after her. Some less glamourous people say it could also be named after Saint Leticia.
