Mercado Municipal - Review

From its name, it's quite evident that the Mercado Municipal, is a market. But there's more to the story than just some buying and selling. A designated covered market place since the1930's, the architecture of the hall is what will first lure you into it. Once you've come to terms with the exquisite skylights and the stained glass windows will you then appreciate the sights at eye-level.

The Mercado Municipal is Sao Paulo's largest food and produce market. There is no better sight in the city that encapsulates the architecture, history and some local culture and life as well the Mercado. With over 300 stalls, take time and browse through some local delicacies. Grab a bite at any of the quaint old cafes before you call it a day.

Mercado Municipal, Sao Paulo Reviews

  • What a brilliant market where the shopkeepers are more than keen to help a ‘gringo’ with plenty of samples of exotic fruits! There’s so much to try from strawberry to dragonfruit to mango and a whole lot more. Apart from fruit, you can pretty much buy any culinary ingredient. The second level provides great views and there are heaps of places to eat if you’re not full already from the fruit samples

  • Fantastic place to visit in São Paulo downtown. Have many kind of types of fruits. Many restaurants with bathrooms. Nearby have subway station, or particular garage if you need to go by car. The most important there is pastels... You need taste this. Coming,

  • Quem vier para São Paulo tem que ir no Mercadão visitar. Comer o lanche de mortadela ou o pastel é uma plus! Vale a pena também provar algumas frutas exóticas. Lugar super agradável!

  • O local é ótimo pela grande variedade de coisas, mas tive o desprazer de sofrer extorsão pelos vendedores de fruta. Entretanto, recomendo muito o pastel e o café moído na hora da cafeteria "Café Jardim"

  • Part of the history of the city so must to see. Only the sellers are a bit too touchy when they detect you're a foreign. In general all the products here are pretty overpriced
