If you’re in town on the weekend, be sure not to miss the Saturday market, when peasants from Villa de Leyva’s rural sector come to town to sell their fruits and vegetables. The market is located 3 blocks from the main plaza, walking southeast toward the Hospedería Duruelo.

In the shops around the Plaza Mayor, look out for handwoven sweaters and ruanas (ponchos) made in surrounding villages. At La Tienda de Feroz (www.latiendaferoz.com; tel. 317/435-5202), Carrera 9 no. 14–101, you’ll find unique gifts and designs inspired by Colombian nature, art, and culture.
