Housed in a stunning example of eclectic industrial architecture, the Mercado Municipal de São Paulo — nicknamed the Mercadão — has thousands of food items on offer, literally from soup to nuts. Lush tropical and temperate fruits from every season, choice cuts of meats and fish, and hearty prepared foods,such as the renowned and enormous mortadella (bologna) sandwich, complete the market's catalog of wares, all for sale in a boisterous, welcoming atmosphere. The surrounding area can be a bit sketchy, but the sights and flavors more than make up for the journey downtown.

So many kinds of meats, cheeses, fruits, nuts...and you can take many samples. Go to the mezzanine and have the HUGE mortodello sandwich. A famous spot in SP.

Mercadão is one of the key spots in Downtown São Paulo. Despite the dodgy neighborhood, the market itself is very well worth a visit. The products inside are very nice, but can be pricey. But one thing cannot be missed: the Bologna Sandwich and the...More

To truly know São Paulo, you have to start at the old
centre, full of history and landmarks with stories to
tell. Get a taste of local food at the Municipal
Market, and if you are brave enough, head to the
crowded shopping street “25 de março” for cheap deals
on a wide assortment of items. Beautiful buildings in
this area include the Post Office Building, Luz
Station, Pagé Gallery, Pateo do Colegio and the iconic
