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.

  • Market known as "municipal market". Nice, clean and easy to access. Has an architecture that draws attention and is taken care of. Restricted in terms of shopping options, because some regional products are not found or known in stores.

  • Attend the municipal market for over 25 years almost like an addiction. Prices are not very attractive, there is much variation, but periodic visits are worth it: bring fond memories and are always fun.

  • It is a choice for touring, nothing special, handicrafts, spices, meats, cheeses, and and others. It is quite small, and the prices quite reasonable to buy souvenirs, is a good choice.
