First time in São Paulo? Just go! Nice food and exotic fruits. Just walk around the fruit stands trying (for free!!) bits of different fruits.

For great food, and a great way to observe Brazilian culture, you have to come here. The fruit market is amazing (they give you lots of samples!), and the meat sandwiches are huge--and delicious. Try the fresh juices, especially passionfruit!

This market was a great place to walk around and take in all the sights and smells. My friends and I ate upstairs at a place that had amazing feijoada. It was one of my favorite (and most filling) meals of the trip.

Must visit if you are in Sao Paolo. They have varieties of food stalls selling meats, cheese,etc. But definately must eat the Mortadella sandwiches...to die for.

Several fruit and vegetable vendors offering wonderful selection (and samples) of ripe, fresh food. Meat, fish, juice, and liquor stores as well. Neighborhood doesn’t seem particularly safe, but we didn’t experience any problems. No/ limited nearby parking.

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
