  • One of the best places in Porto Alegre to buy toasted coffee beans and nuts (chestnuts, walnuts, etc.). If you are looking for a fresh fish, also take a look at Japesca.
  • Historical marketplace in the heart of downtown Porto Alegre. Anything you can imagine, from traditional handcraft from the south of Brazil, to everyday grocery shopping, as well as good restaurants and café, mercado público will have for you. Take sometime to walk around before buying anything, since there are many choices. A must for tourists to know when visiting Porto Alegre.
  • Traditional market, located in the center of the city. It is not large, but it has several stalls (traditional regional products, meats, spices, seasonings, erbs, fishmongers, restaurants, confectionery, etc.). Worth the visit for sure!
  • A nice downtown attraction, good place to buy souvenirs, maybe some southern cachacas or craft beer. Not like the wild central markets you find in some other Brazilian cities, scale is more modest (the entire upstairs is closed) and much of the business is geared toward tourists. Nonetheless, a must-see if you're visiting.
  • Vintage restaurants and freshly, organic produce... What's not to love! Go to Gambrinu's - second oldest restaurant in the whole city and they have wonderful dishes!
