Mercado Municipal

historical market of Sao Paulo

Old construction of 1933. Full of colored glass, the location is ideal to find exotic fruits and spices typical from other countries, moreover, is an excellent option to admire the architecture in neoclassical style, which has gone through reforms. With the Revitalization Program of the Center of São Paulo, the Mercado Municipal (Central Market) or simply "Mercadão" as everyone says, was rebuilt in 2003. In addition to restoring the facade, stained glass and painting, the building also received new facilities such as underground, the old Hall of Auctions (now Hall of Events) and mezzanine, which offers eight restaurants.
This is one of the most traditional gourmets point of São Paulo, the Mercadão surprises with a big variety of domestic and imported foods. The total market usually trades more than 350 tons of food daily.
