Mercado Municipal, Florianopolis

Landmark · Tourist Spot
Mercado Municipal is permanently busy, with people from all walks of life meeting to play dominoes, listen to live music, and, of course, shop. Teeming with fresh shrimp, mussels, and oysters as well as various dried goods, ceramics, and local art, you will enjoy browsing the 140 stalls--known as “boxes”--. Make sure you pay a visit to Box32 in the heart of the market, a popular café famous for its delicious “pastel de camarão” and cold draft beer.
