MEDELLIN | Plaza Minorista José María Villa is the place to visit in Medellin if you want to sample the freshest local produce and traditional cooked foods. The market was established in 1984 to bring together the diverse range of street vendors that had set up in the area post a prior market, in Medellin’s Guayaquil area, being destroyed by fire in 1968.

Today Plaza Minorista is home to over 2,500 stalls, mostly food related. It’s popular with locals stocking up on produce for the week, and chefs looking for ingredient’s for the day’s menu at their restaurants. Fruit and vegetables are the main reason that people visit. Prices tend to be lower than other places in town and the quality of produce is exceptional. Beyond fruit and vegetables, you can also find meat, seafood, poultry, plants, sweets, spices, kitchen equipment, and non-food items like clothing and footwear. There are several vendors selling freshly prepared local delicacies like empanadas, arepas, and Bandeja Paisa, and there are several small restaurants and bars.

Plaza Minorista is a great place to walk around and try a variety of things. The market is vibrant, colourful, and full of energy. Vendors are happy to sell you single items, so you can try a variety of fruits and vegetables that catch your eye, some which can only be found in this part of Colombia. From maracuyá to zapote, and pitaya to curuba, the fruits here are a wonderful and eye opening adventure for your taste buds.

If possible, try and visit in the morning, when the market is at its busiest and the vast majority of vendors are open and fully stocked.

The best way to get to Plaza Minorista is using the Medellin Metro. Minorista Metroplús bus station is located directly across the road from the market, and is linked to Medellin’s fantastic integrated transport system. Industriales metro station on line A connects directly to line 1 of the Metroplús system, which is the line that Minorista station is on.
