There are two options when it comes to shopping in Medellín. The first is to head downtown to the sprawling markets at Parque Berrio metro station. Here you can find local traders peddling everything from electronics to trainers and dresses to soccer jerseys. For those who prefer calm to the chaos of a thriving market, one of the many swanky malls is the best option. While most have an abundance of famous retailers, Oviedo and El Tesoro also have independent boutiques and gift shops where traditional clothes and souvenirs can be purchased. Upper Parque Lleras is home to two streets of chic stores where locals sell handmade clothes and jewelry.
