  • Fair very exotic. Parking around. Go with clothes and comfortable shoes. Beware of belongings. Diverse fair with regional products. Worth the visit. Beautiful view to the bottom. Difficult to have information for tourists. The official part of the fair is organized, however the "dismemberment" is pretty disorganized, without structure and dirty ...

  • a great place for those who want to discover the flavours of Bahia, besides the religious African culture, a site highly busy, with sales of various regional products, restaurant with sea views, and good prices into account, even with private security should not neglect with the belongings, more is very good for those who want to know about the identity of Bahia

  • This can be just another market, as another reviewer noted, but what "got me" is that this is the place most Candomble practitioners go to get their offering animals, candles, and even costumes. This ...  more »

  • 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!
  • Ok
  • To whom may come to Salvador you have to visit that market, it's a magical place.

Where to stay in Salvador

The majority of accommodations in Salvador fall into three distinct groupings. If you want to be close to the best historical attractions, stay in or near the old town of Pelourinho, a few minutes from the city's west-facing coastline. This also puts you in the heart of Salvador's tourist-driven nightlife. Your second option is to stay at the southwestern tip of the city, in the neighborhood of Barram, where you'll have instant access to one of Salvador's favorite beaches. Finally, look a bit farther afield to Rio Vermelho, a quieter beachside neighborhood facing south.
