Ver-o-peso Reviews & Ratings
A amazing market. Very crowded and dirty. Hundreds of black vultures sit on the buildings scavenging on the rubbish. Quite an experience. A very bustling market with many different products from the Amazon.
Kinda wet in spots from all the rain - but fabulous market. Large range of food and products available here...Anything you are looking for...
Amazing place to check the local amazonian fruits, fishes, juices, nuts, etc. An absolutely "must go" place if in Belém.
We enjoyed very much this place. It's real, with popular food and things to buy. Good experience.
Amazing place to eat açaí.
