Mercado Municipal, Campinas

3.7
#3 of 15 in Shopping in Campinas
Originally a sugar warehouse, Mercado Municipal (Municipal Market) continues to thrive, despite the competition from big chain hypermarkets and superstores. Stalls overflow with fresh produce, local delicacies, handicrafts, medicinal herbs, and even "pó do amor" (love powder). If you don't feel like spending, you can always just wander, drinking in the vibrant bustle and charming neo-Islamic architecture.

  • The city's Central market, small in comparison to that of São Paulo or Recife, but has traditional items fresh fish, fruits, vegetables, meats, all for feijoada jerky beef jerky, herbs, chestnuts, hats, boots and all. Recommend.
