A myriad of stalls with fruits, cereals, meat, cheeses, wines, cachaças, etc. A few reastaurants with "local" food, some patisseries and at least one ice cream shop (highly recommended!).

I recommend an excellent cachacaria on the side near the pinacoteca. Nice neo classical architecture. Everything is authentic there.

An old market, the first and only one in the city, busy and alive every day of the week. Packed with some typical restaurants, some of them part of the political city history, they offer the freshest local cuisine. A must.
