Square Market San Gil

Only two blocks away from the main square, enjoy a true "Santanderiana" experience at thePlaza de Mercado (market square).

Fruits in San Gil's Market Square

San Gil market offers a beautiful display of colourful fruits and vegetables and is a great opportunity to meet people and sample the local food and culture.

Breakfast time in San Gil!The San Gil market is the most important of the region and includes products produced in the nearby towns and villages. Expect a large array of fruits, vegetables, meat, dairy products, flowers and the local delicacy: toasted ants (hormigas culonas)…

=> There is more business going on at the weekend with the local farmers joining the regular stalls but any day of the week is fine to enjoy the place.

Go there in the morning and begin with a refreshing juice or fruit salad. Then head to the small food stalls filled with people eating the traditional tamal with arepa or opt for a more local egg soup. Almost like a brunch!

Did you know?

When you book an activity from an hostel (rafting, paragliding...) they will take a commission of 10 to 20%, so you'd better book it directly with the tour operators!
