  • Is a super nice place to go eat the famous Bologna sandwich or pastry of cod, which are really delicious, but beware the fruit stalls, they can ruin your experience. Some tents begin to offer fruits and more fruits, and then you solve lead a of each of the 8 who proved and your basket comes to 200 real!! Yes, many are ridiculously expensive! In the end, I returned more than half because I refused to pay, for example, actual 30 by a Tangerine! And there yet you look with ugly face ... But Tb has nuts, candy and cheese at prices well accessible and with many varieties! It's worth it!

  • There's simply no place like it. Imagine a VAST warehouse filled with shops offering foods of every description. Fresh seafood with open-mouthed fish of every size. An Italian foods shop with all manner of salami-type meats hanging from the ceiling. Order lamb, order goat - or exotic fruit! There was a shop with candied fruit and dried teas and even love potions. Quite a melange of various Brazilian cultural influences. They even have a little Brazilian gift shop where you can buy Brazilian t-shirts and such. NOTE: Try to take Uber (which is becoming popular in Brazil) or a taxi, etc. Parking is horrible and the Metro doesn't get you so very close. Much more fun with a taxi.
  • A must-see in São Paulo. One of the best places to see everything São Paulo has to offer in terms of cuisine in one place at one time. But be warned, everything "take-away" is 30-80% overpriced. Notoriously expensive are the "exotic" fruits which can cost more than R$100 per kilo. If you really want to buy fruit, the cheapest fruits can be found at the stand next to the escalator and beer store. Can't miss: Mortadela sandwich at Bar do Mané (NOT Hooca), The view of the hustle and bustle from the Mezzanine.
  • This place is a must see in São Paulo. The pastel de bacalhau and the Mortadela sandwich is totally awesome!!!!!
  • This is a great place to take foreigners in São Paulo by subway. They get to see the busy city center, try many different fruit, and (for those who are brave at heart) they can have the mortadela sandwich or the cod fish pastel for lunch. My personal recommendations are: 1. ask for the mortadela sandwich with half the regular amount of it; 2. don't be afraid to try fruit (and don't feel like you need to buy it after trying; Important notice: there are cheaper places to buy almost everything you'll find at this Market. It is still worth the visit, though.
  • Coma o sanduíche de mortadela!
