You get used to seeing sombrero topped men draped in colorful woolen ponchos on the streets of Jardín. They are typically relaxing on a corner sipping a locally grown coffee and enjoying a few hours away from the farm. We spent several days in this mountain village during our month in Colombia, and it was amongst our favorite places to visit in the country.
Walking into the best food market in Colombia is an experience all on its own. Tucked deep inside a temporary storage yard, the dozens of garage stall kitchens would be all but invisible if it weren’t for the half dozen ladies waving their menus at each passerby. Entering the makeshift food court without one of these kitchen owners alongside means an almost guaranteed squabble as to who claims the newest customer. The small concrete courtyard is filled with plastic tables and surrounded by mini restaurants, each identifiable solely by their stall number. We had followed a young lady to stall 92, and were now being served a bubbling cauldron brimming with cazuela del marisco. Resembling a thick seafood étouffée, this dish displays the Afro-Colombian influences which make up the rich culture in this port city. This was like discovering New Orleans without the spice or the price.
