  • The market is full of craft stalls. Upstairs there are two restaurants, with a beautiful view of the harbour, and where you eat an exquisite moqueca.

  • I really enjoyed it. Knowing how to choose the prices are great, I bought several earrings and a beautiful necklace in Márcia (very helpful), worth knowing.

  • It is a quaint place, with many craft venues but too noisy. People talk to screams. They are also somewhat aggressive when it comes to offering their products.

  • One of the best places to buy Brazilian artwork and whatever else to decorate or increment your house. They have clothes and cool music instruments too. I would take a historical tour while at it! So much history in and out!!
  • Nice market for cheap but also for artful travel souvenirs. Very many providers and very large selection. A seller on the right side behind has e.g. artful fish made of balsa wood in every size.
  • Amazing experience: both for the historical significance of the market and for the amazing array of handmade souvenirs. No better place for a tourist to pick up awesome chachkies in Salvador
  • Crowded with cheap souvenirs that did not seem authentic in any way. Not really a lot of food either. The building is definitely most interesting from the outside.
  • Interesting only because the building was the old slave market - it's now a market for cheap tourist souvenirs
