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.

    Great place for shopping for horti-frutis of excellent quality, various spices, fish, meat, ingredients for feijoada, Northeast, etc. Try the coxinha cassava served in many Diners and the traditional pastry dumplings of Chinese in the main hall.
