MEDELLIN | Mercado del Río is a wonderland for lovers of good food that opened in October 2016. The large space is home to over 50 open kitchen restaurants and bars specialising in cuisine from all over the world.

The space is a single warehouse style space with a ground level and mezzanine level and is modeled after Mercados Roma in Mexico, Borough Markett in London, and Chelsea Market in New York City. It’s a fun, vibrant space full of people from all walks of life. Most of the venues have a few stools at their counters, but the majority of seating is communal seating dotted throughout the venue.

Popular restaurants with outlets here include Amor Perfecto, Carbone e Pasta, El Rancherito, Jabalí, Juicy Lucy, Le Coq, Monsieur Waffle, Parmessano, Peru Mix, and Sinko. We highly recommend the delicious pork dishes from Jabalí – their award winning burger is outstanding. Mercado del Río open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, and the food is all priced at the affordable, mid range level, about right for a casual offering like this.

When we visited, Real Madrid v Barcelona was being shown live on the large screen in the centre of the venue, and the place was packed with people watching the game. The space was perfect for it and added to the fun atmosphere. Often live sports, or other entertainment is on at Mercado del Rio, making it a place worth visiting for more than just food and drink.

If you’re in Medelline’s Caicedo neighbourhood, Mercado del Tranvía is also worth visiting. It’s on the Ayacucho tram line and is a similar concept to Mercado del Río. There’s also Mercado Del Rio La Strada, which opened in the southern part of El Poblado in July 2018.

Paul founded The City Lane back in 2009 as a place to share photos of his travels around Europe with friends and family. The City Lane might have changed quite a lot since those early days but one thing that’s remained constant is Paul’s passion for food, travel and culture, and a desire to photograph and write about his experiences. Paul has a strong inquisitive nature that drives him to look beneath the surface in order to discover what really makes a city and its people tick, and what better way to do this than over a good meal or drink, with a city’s locals, at places that people who live in that city actually frequent. Paul is also a co-host of The Brunswick Beer Collective, a podcast that may or may not actually be about beer.
