The market had few stores open when we visited on Friday morning. I expected more options for local arts and crafts. There is a great store of medicinal products from the Amazon. That was the highlight

Want to relax after busy day? Renovated Mercado Velho is the place. I like how they renovated it - nice bright colors, plenty of places to get drinks and snacks.
