Mercado Municipal


From the downtown area we walked through the busy streets to the Mercado Municipal in Sao Paulo. We ate the fattest Mortadella sandwiches ever – yum!

We also had this huge croquet of cod called a Bolinho  Bacalhau.


The building has a ton of different vendors selling things like: fruits, cheese, ham, fish, spices, teas, wine, and oils. We stopped at a place to try their oysters. I had one with a mango on top, and another with a salsa like a pico de gallo. Delicious!




Samba Saturday

Saturday is the day of the Brazilian dish Feijuada. It is a stew of black beans and different meats, and is served with white rice and fried collard greens on the side. We went to the Praca Sao Luis to eat and see some live Samba. We paired this with some beer and I even bought a fedora hat to get the true Brazilian experience.  The praca was full of people dancing to the live Samba band.
