They obviously have a great variety of products, but the salesmen know if you are a tourist and charge you ridiculous amounts of money for anything. It is revolting! Try all the stuff they push you to try and don't feel bad to walk away...More

visiting mercadao is an unique experience. Good variety of fruits and some spices, but very crowed, finding a parking spot is very hard, and the surrounding area is not clean.

It's the place where you buy fruits meat etc. They have many shops with huge variety of options available for customers. At first floor many restaurants serving Brazilian Chopp (beer), must try tastes very different from normal beer.

Lovely market to stroll around different fruit, cheese, meat and spices stalls. Make sure you try the traditional lunches or pastel de bacalhau.

Just like usually markets are, full of people, sellers trying to make you try and then buy everything, good food, fresh fruits, fish, seafood and meat. The place is a historical building in the city center, not a very nice neighborhood, be careful until you...More

The market is definitely in a working-class neighborhood, but offers a wonderful selection of shops for fruit, meats and beverages in addition to some very tasty and diverse restaurants. If you're a goody and not fussy, definitely visit.

To truly know São Paulo, you have to start at the old
center, full of history and landmarks with stories to
tell. Get a taste of local food at the Municipal
Market, and if you are brave enough, head to the
crowded shopping street “25 de março” for cheap deals
on a wide assortment of items. Beautiful buildings in
this area include the Post Office Building, Luz
Station, Pagé Gallery, Pateo do Colegio and the iconic
