Great local food: cheeses, fruits, cookies, pepper, meat, sweets, and much more. If you have time to spare, go to Mesa Cheia, a restaurant at the upper floor. If you are in a hurry, grab a beer standing at one of the bars. The appetizers are great. Between the bites, go through the art shops or the cookware shops. It's... More

There you can find a great variety of tropical fruits, seeds and vegetables. There are a bunch of bars with typical local food. As well, there are an area of hand made crafts.

At first sight it can be not pleasant, but once you get in, you will discover a very interesting place! You will find local products, such as tropical fruits, cheese, particular food, hand made art... Not the cheapest place, but definitely worth a visit!

After all it's just a public market, but it's quite clean and safe to visit the one in Belo Horizonte, capital from the Brazilian state of Minas Gerais. Specially if you are a fan of markets as I am. The mix of colours, forms and smells is great. In Brazil it is nice to see for instance the diversity of... More

Great place with all kinds of stuff. My wife was especially happy with all the cheese options since she now lives in the US and can't get a lot of the those items here.

Many different kinds of foods, fruits, cachaças, pepper, cheese, animals, fishes, flowers and handcrafts. So many colours, so many smells that are sold by common ordinary people from the state that is a small sample of Brazil. You can eat and drink but don't expect waiters using white gloves.
