  • The market model reflects a bit of Bahian culture both for typical products, such as foods, musical instruments, and the performances of capoeira and other cultural events. Well worth a visit.

  • The products are a little repetitive, gives the impression that all the "craft" of Bahia is in the hands of a few "artists" because I found exactly the same products (paints, crafts etc.) all over town.

  • An obligatory stop in Salvador. Worth a drive to meet and see all the stores! There's a lot of memory.

  • Very nice market mostly for tourists. Products are special and not expensive. Outside the building beatifull sites of the city.
  • Touristic touristic touristic. Too touristic.
  • Unfair prices! Go to the Pelorinhos central square- everything is cheaper there.
  • It's an unique place, for me it was anyway, since I had never been to a market like this prior to my first trip to Salvador. You can find a lot of different products for sale from inside the market as well as from sellers outside in the open part. You can likely barter with them to get a lower price on your items as I did that before. So it's something to keep in mind. If you're looking to go to Morro de São Paulo you can get your boat ticket from an office nearby here as well. I think it's just on the outside of the mercado.
