Mercado Modelo, Salvador Reviews

  • Its OK to buy some good deal gifts and memorable items from Salvador but the market itself is nothing really special. Also not that big as I imagined. It would be packed in a busy day. Is it worth to see? More or less then at least there is the elevator to take and go up walk to Pelourinho. I would not recommend if you have short time in Salvador. If you are here at least more than 3 days yeap go for it.

  • Many things here I had been able to find elsewhere for the same price, or cheaper. The view was nice from the restaurant.

  • Some local stuff that aint bad. But there s not much variety. Went there for half an hour and it was more than enough

  • Lugar pouco seguro e desorganizado. Poderia oferecer melhor infraestrutura. Entretanto, é uma parada obrigatória do tour histórico de Salvador. Ficando em frente ao elevador Lacerda, é impossível conhecer Pelourinho e não visitar o Mercado. Possui restaurantes de comida gostosa, mas péssimo atendimento.

  • Love the market vibe here. Theres lots of Bahia in this building. Spices and clothes to restaurants and hammocks. Good water sourced food in the restaurants, I do not recommend going if you don't like seafood. It has a lovely view of the port bay below. It helps to speak Portuguese if you're trying to haggle in the market though.
