  • It is worth visiting. Is the focus of baianidade. Very good fruits. Lunch there. Feijoada only. The baianos natives attend too.

  • Every little Hall, a different smell of Herbs, Spices, fruits and vegetables. A common location for the State of Bahia, and for those who want to experience the everyday life of the people that I love, know this market and have a Beer on the beach of Baía de Todos os Santos, seeing the island of Itaparica in the horizon and the gigantic Rafts!!!!

  • I had the opportunity to walk the narrow streets of what is called San Joaquin fair. I had the opportunity to eat a bean that in many locations exquisite wouldn't eat. Very simple but fascinating receptivity. For those not familiar, I advise you to go with a guide or follow the guidelines of people known in the region. Site with low content of assault (according to my great friend baiano), but maybe not.

  • Well, if you are looking for typical Bahian food ingredients then search no more. An open air market with too many choices and options. Meat and spices are too commun there. In addition fruits and vegetables are sold for very cheap prices. However, the smell of the place and the level of hygiene there affects drastically your will top come back more often. You can park your car outside where a "street worker" is going to ask you for money, 3 reals will do the trick.
  • Maybe one of the best places to visit in town. That's is raw Bahia as you can only see in Pierre Verger's pictures or in Jorge Amado's books. This is where baianos go for shopping. It's very cheap but don't expect to find a clean market. This one is dirty. And still beautiful. Absolutely worth it!
