Bogotá Earth Market

The Earth Market was founded in 2012. Since then, it has grown to involve more than 40 enterprises, the vast majority of which are led by women producers and family projects.

The offerings are varied and based on fresh food from different territories, widely diverse in climate and vocation, with priority given to native foods and local varieties of fruits, vegetables and seeds.
Artisanal preparations meet the most diverse needs of the community; ample attention is paid to vegetarian products while animal by-products come exclusively from selected and traceable supply chains; Fish is derived from small-scale artisanal fishing in the Caribbean and Colombian Pacific while meat and cured meats from sustainable and animal welfare-conscious farming.

The market takes place every Sunday and with its educational program promotes change toward a more equitable and sustainable food system based on the principles of agroecology.
These events, organized in collaboration with the Slow Food Alliance of Chefs and the country’s many communities, are the true signature of the Bogota Earth Market.

Once a month, the community of producers prepare snacks and drinks in a "Slow Brunch" that serves to show, in practice, how to cook community foods in innovative ways at home as well, highlighting products such as coca leaf, Guáimaro, cassava leaf, and local wheat.

Since 2021, the Market has been following the "Mesa Biodiversa" strategy to support productive communities and territories in other regions of the country. This allows the customer community to learn about the national food basket and to recognize our consumption as a seed of transformation and opportunity toward a regenerative food system.
