Mercado Modelo, Salvador Reviews

  • 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.

  • It's a good place to buy souvenirs of Salvadorm because there is a big variety of gifts and they are not expensive.

  • Expensive prices for tourists. Nice view for eating but not a good service from the restaurant.

  • Always nice to visit. Especially when you're in search of presents. Lots of handicrafts.

  • Great traditional market in Salvador. Lots of clothing, food, spices, etc
