A variety of products on offer.
Can you picture a secret market under extraordinary Neo-Gothic stained glass windows in a stunning 1993 piece of architecture? And a market that sells everything from medicinal herbs to Spanish ham and exotic fruits? This surprising combination is found in the Municipal Market, in a historic centre near Tamanduateí River. The 2004 remodelling did not take away its charm, especially with the restoration of the stained glass created by Russian artist Conrado Sorgenicht Filho in the 30s, which depicts scenes of agriculture and cattle farming. However, vendors complain that many tourists go only to admire the market, rather than to buy. If you want to contribute to the local market, feel free to do your grocery shopping in this place. It is worth trying the cod pasties and mortadella sandwiches from the food stalls that you will see are a big hit with the visitors.
