Great diversity of products. In there you’ll find exotic fruits, exotic cheese and much more. You must try São Paulo’s tradicional mortadela sandwich , sold on the many restaurants on the second floor of the mercadão.
An amazing gastronomic experience.
This market is a must-visit in the capital of the state of Bahia - Salvador. The Market Model brings in more than 260 craft, painting, food, and drink shops. Built in 1861 in the Neoclassical architectural style, it is considered part of the artistic heritage of Brazil. Located in the "Comercio - cidade baixa", from outside the market you can see the Porto de Salvador, Lacerda Elevator (Another must-visit tourist spot) and typical rounds of Capoeira. In terms of craftsmanship you can find everything: paintings, the famous "fitinhas do Senhor do Bonfim" (used for wishes), clay or wood dolls and a multitude of small gifts. To get better prices there you have to haggle ...
It is a market where you can find a little of everything: fruit, vegetables, meat, fish, and all the typical ingredients of Bahian cuisine like the ubiquitous azeite de dendé (palm oil). There are also decorative objects and objects of Candomblé worship, the Afro-American religion of Bahia. For those who are not too picky about hygiene, it is also a good place to try the local cuisine. It's nothing touristy, and is mostly frequented by locals.
The fish market in the city of Fortaleza is at the end of Beira. There are about thirty stalls selling all kinds of seafood. On the site you can haggle over prices, and you'll leave with a styrofoam box containing your selection, the best way to transport it while keeping it fresh until you get it home. You can buy fish, prawns, lobsters, oysters, squid, octopus and more - all excellent quality, and some really good prices. If you're feeling hungry, there are some stalls where you can eat on the spot. It's a rustic but picturesque spot, with great views over the coast. A nice place to watch the sunset. Average: pink shrimp (Kg): R $ 22.00 to R $ 30.00 white shrimp (kg): $ 15 00 to $ 20.00 lobster (Kg): R $ 30,00 to R $ 40,00 beer (600 ml): R $ 4.00 to $ 6.00 In general, in cash.
I really like to visit markets, and I came to this public market in Porto Alegre where I bought a kilo of mate and some spices. Here, in the historic centre of the city, you can really feel the essence of the place as you see merchants coming and going, trying to sell their fish and many other products. There's an artisan market as well as places selling freshly prepared food. Highly recommended.
Everyone who travels wants to bring a special souvenir home with them. Aracaju has a market where you can find plenty to choose from. There are lots of little things on offer, but nothing so big that it'll fill your bag completely. An essential stop for your souvenir shopping.
