Mercado Verde at the Botanical Gardens Today
It looks like the Mercado Verde at the Botanical Gardens will be nice today. http://www.botanicomedellin.org/eventos … tml#arriba In addition to the usual sales of interesting and varied food items, books etc there will be a Yoga class at 10:00 AM, and a lecture on medicinal plants and plants used for religious and magic purposes at 1:30 PM. The youth troop of Antioquia’s folk ballet will perform at 3:00 PM. I have seen this group perform and enjoyed it greatly. These kids can dance. Entry to the gardens and the Mercado Verde is free.
Getting to the Botanical Gardens is easy. Just ride the Metro to the Universidad Station. After exiting the station bare right and cross the street. The north entry to the gardens will be right in front of you. If you come by cab just tell the driver you are going to the gardens, they all know where it is.
