  • I love to buy dried fruit, hearts of Palm and cashews in the municipal market of São Paulo. in addition to the tents are very tidy, there are good options for snacks and the possibility to enjoy the stained glass Windows that are beautiful.

  • Nice place with a lot of variety of products and fruits. Worth checking out. For tour prices may be well salted. But if you look you can find something more reasonable and good at same location

  • Always a great place to stop when visiting downtown São Paulo, even though the surroundings can be quite crowded and challenging to navigate. Once inside, though, you can marvel at the architectural wonder that this place is while trying out an amazing variety of fruits from all over the word. Also, there are a lot of stalls that sells cured meats, spices and a variety of condiments. If you are a meat eater, stop by any of the stalls that sell the mortadela sandwich (its sorta like bologni). It comes with more meat than bread, and it is very tasty!
  • The only good thing about this place is the fact that they have a huge options of fruits and some other things that you won't find anywhere else in town. But the prices are high and the place looks dirty, the floor is always stinking and outside the building smells like pee. Also the parking lot is always full, better use the public transportation to get here.
  • It's a nice vintage place/food market. Very good atmosphere and good places to grab a bite. Be careful not to get fooled into paying extra for your stuff. Ask for prices and negotiate them always!
  • This is an old train station or something turned into a giant indoor market. You can buy everything from Paulaner beer to cashews still attached to the fruit. It is touristy and more expensive than other farmer markets, but the stainglass windows and the German beer make it a must see for me
  • 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.
