  • Very disorganized and tight. It has places to buy souvenirs but the clutter is not worth it. I went to the market for referrals and I was wrong.

  • I went to the market following indication of local residents, but did not like the market. Despite having several rummage options to buy the place is disorganized, tight and sometimes become unpleasant voyage. The food served here is low and I don't anything about Northeastern tradition on the market when it comes to gastronomy. Honestly I didn't like!

  • You can find various regional products at a price much better than sights. Some crafts sold at ground zero for example. Try cashews with Sesame and caramel. It is very good!

  • Authentic street market with lots of indoor artisanry shops and many stands with vegetables, fruits, spices, snacks, meat, poultry and seafood. The earlier you go the better. Expect the messiness and hectic ambiance of any third world street market. I wouldn't recommend it for the infirm, families with pets, small children or toddlers. Vendors only speak Brazilian Portuguese. Great for getting a legit taste of life from the point of view of local working class people. Much better to go with a person who has been there before.
  • Touristic attraction, that is a popular market, where you can find anything since local souvenirs to food!
  • A popular market in which you can find food, clothes, crafts and cultural stuff.

Where to stay in Recife

It's no surprise that the vast majority of accommodations in Recife crowd around the city's long expanses of shorefront. Consider the southern coastal neighborhood of Boa Viagem for instant access to miles of vibrant beachfront, the prime location for locals and tourists alike to make the most of the sunshine. As well as high-end hotels and beach resorts, you can opt to stay in a range of fun, budget hostels, thanks to Recife's ever-growing popularity among backpackers. If you want something a bit quieter, look to the nearby historical town of Olinda, just 6 km (3.7) north of the city center. From there, you can easily make day--or night--trips to Recife proper.
