Mercado Central, land of the artisans

Mercado Central, land of the artisans

Save some room in your suitcase because you won't leave empty-handed.

First built in wood in 1809 to welcome butchers, fruit and vegetable stands and fish mongers, the original building has since given way to a very modern version, dedicated to original crafts for the pleasure of bargain hunters. This is the main market of Northeast Brazil, and a required stop for many visitors. This shopping haven will meet your every desire with its stands overflowing with a thousand and one temptations, from regional produce such as spices, manioc and fruits to clothing, jewellery and other items. Prolong the taste of your Brazilian vacation with a bottle of cachaça (alcohol made with Brazilian sugar cane) then spoil your entourage at home with your mastery of caipirinhas (the famous cocktail with a base of cachaça mixed with sugar and lime). Stock up on pareos, leather sandals and baskets and taste some tropical fruit, Brazilian nuts and cashew nut spread. Everything you need for some great gifts for family and friends is right before you!
