A typical tourist trap . Not the traditional Mercado Central Anymore.
Aug 2021
Not so many fresh food and groceries anymore. A typical touristic trap. Today I only would suggest for tourist people. Citizens from Belo Horizonte don´t have many reasons go there ....

I was born in Belo Horizonte and I live here for 43 years. In my childhood I used to go with my parents to shop groceries, fruits and vegetables in " Mercado Central". A good smell remains in my memories.

That week I visited Mercado Central looking for some fresh ingredients and I got dissapointed. A lot of shops selling almost the same thing: Canastra Cheese, Doce de Leite "Caramel Milk"/ Dulce de Leche" , fitness supplements, some grocery and seasoning shops, but only 4 shops selling fresh ingredients like vegetables and fruits and some bars selling cold beer with some finger food.

Another problem is the parking lot R$ 12,00 an hour.... Is too much expensive....and during the weekends is impossible to park there.... Use taxi or applications like Uber.

Unfortunately I felt very very sad, because Mercado Central today is an typical shopping center like any other. Not the Mercado that the fresh food smell will kept in my memory forever....

Crowded market
Feb 2020 • Friends
Got some nice food and drink. A bit repetitive on selection (cheese stands have same cheese, souvenir stands have same souvenirs, etc).

A minus for keeping live animals in small cages.

One of a kind !!!
Feb 2020
Being a local resident, I can recommend this place as a typical and unique place in town. It has been the central food market of the city since the 1920´s. Fresh fruits and vegetables, some typical from the region, butechers shop, household appliances, best in country regional sugar cane spirits (cachaça) and cheeses. "Stand up" bars where you can taste some unique local flavours

Very busy place with a lot of small shops from all Brazil and of course typical Mineiros food, drinks and souvenirs. There is a radio station on upper floor, all kind of food from Minas Gerais state. Small shops and restaurant where you can buy or enjoy local delicatessens. Stones souvenirs it’s have to buy as region famous for it. Good place to visit with friends and make some shopping.

Typical regional trade space, very interesting
Oct 2019
BH Central Market is a very interesting place to visit as it has many different types of trade. From local souvenirs to various types of food, such as fresh fruits and vegetables, as well as the household and even pet trade. Its variety and diversity attracts a lot of people. It also has bars and snack bars for a quick snack. Should know.

A lovely place to visit. I usually go there to buy local cheeses, roasted coffees and some other typical local food but there are much more there to see and do. If you visit Belo Horizonte do not miss it!

Awesome local market

If you want to see where the locals shop and also be delightfully overwhelmed by tastes, sights and smells, this is the place. You can get almost anything Brazilian here. Great for gifts. And for yourself.
