Nice place had no problems, it is a very large market and I felt secure as the reviews are old in a lot of the web pages. I saw no pick pockets or felt any danger during my two visits so far the smell is outrageous yet I'm on vacation for 3 months might as well get use to it... More

The place is surrounded by a popular fair with lots of herbs and fruits. Inside de market, you can reach local fish, more herbs and sauces. Some hand made beverages. Everything is very picturesque. It's very interesting visit in the morning, as early as you can go.

Please mind your belongings here, especially when it's crowded. It's a very interesting place to understand local culture, buy some fruits, veggies and fish. You can also buy all kinds of gifts here. Don't try eating here or you might risk getting food poisoning or some bad stomach feeling. Check the Docas restaurants just 3 minutes ahead.

Visited Mercado Ver-o-Peso with a group of 12 and an English speaking tour guide for about an hour on a Wednesday morning when things were fairly quiet. Took notice of guide and Belem people who advised us to be careful and not take or wear obvious valuables. Need not have worried as there was a highly visible police presence and... More

It´s incredible the variety of fruits, colors, smells, tastes you can find at Ver-o-Peso. Even if you are Brazilian, you will be delighted. Everything is so exotic that you shall leave you prejudice aside and taste whatever you want.

The smell of the herbs of rainforests, birds, fish, exotic fruits. We are on the border of the Amazon. The people are warm and friendly. Be sure to try the goldfish and some of the Acai, the fruit, if you are not used to. Typical local dish. After? Or take a boat back in the immense river or have a... More

Be careful there because you can be scammed by sellers and thieves. Don't show much money. Pay attention when pay for something, some guys will try to pretend you gave them wrong money, e.g., you give R$ 100 and they tell you gave R$ 2, after change the note (they are like magicians) and you believe that did a mistake,...

If one wants to see Lisbon in the 17th century, before the earthquake hit the Portuguese capital, NW Brazil offers soem fine glimpses, and the Marcado Ver-O-Peso is no exception. From fish to viagara, from mangoes to shovels it offeres everything; in particular I loved the many stalls run by Amerindian women offering ever possible cure for every possible disease,... More

Vero-o-peso means see the weight in Portuguese. Old market is nicely covered with roofing construction that looks like sails and separated in many small kitchens where you can get everything and anything to eat. Food is mostly presented in plates or pots and you pick what you would like to try, eat or indulge in. Would recommend to everyone.

If you love fresh fish, fruits and vegetables this is the place to go in Belém. They have lots of fruits for sale that are not available in other parts of Brazil. Plenty of places to grab a snack and something cold to drink. A great place for cultural learning as the local vendors are more than happy to share... More
