  • Several options of food, supplies and drinks. Very good to know. Just don't fall into the catch of the fruit sellers, they give thousands to prove and then compensates for all the value in what we buy. Worth knowing the mercadão!! Quality products

  • For anyone who loves gourmet tours of the cities they visit, this is the right place to go. Taste the famous bread of mortadella and crayons, in addition to the sale of food and various spices on the boxes present on the floor.

  • Local interessante. Já visitei alguns mercados públicos e a regra geral parece ser a mesma: vais ser assediado pelos vendedores. Mas eis o diferencial: eles vão te dar tantos produtos para provar que é possível ficar satisfeito passando-se em todas as bancas... aconselho provar o pastel de carne seca (não importa a banca). Achei até erva mate pro meu chimarrão. Alguns itens, não locais, podem ser bem caros, mas é muito difícil não encontrar o que estás procurando.
  • Lugar excelente para visitação. Comida e produtos excelentes. Não espere preços baixos, o lugar é para turistas. Já foi o tempo onde tudo era barato no Mercadão... E cuidado com a Máfia da Fruta. Todos ali estão para enrolar os mais desavisados. A seção de frios queijos e etc é fiel aos preços e são muito prestativos. A galera da Fruta parece facção criminosa. Se você for pra comer, chegue cedo (11:30), ou, bem tarde, principalmente em uma sexta-feira.
  • What a brilliant market where the shopkeepers are more than keen to help a ‘gringo’ with plenty of samples of exotic fruits! There’s so much to try from strawberry to dragonfruit to mango and a whole lot more. Apart from fruit, you can pretty much buy any culinary ingredient. The second level provides great views and there are heaps of places to eat if you’re not full already from the fruit samples
  • Fantastic place to visit in São Paulo downtown. Have many kind of types of fruits. Many restaurants with bathrooms. Nearby have subway station, or particular garage if you need to go by car. The most important there is pastels... You need taste this. Coming,
  • Great place to look around, try different tastes as food and fruit. There has different kinds of fruit that you won't find in the regular supermarket. Some of the restaurants are really pricey. Like a pastel for R$25 as an example.
