My daughter took us here while we were visiting. It can be a little scary, but I never felt threatened. It was a very interesting place and we found some great local handmade souvenirs.

One could find great deals here, small maze type outdoor cubes, prizes are lower than other stores in town, if you can take the heat, go for a walk thru sacupira.

Cape Verde I like to say is "Africa without being in Africa!" However when you come to Mercado de Sucupira, an old fashion flea market, you trully experiment the African Flavor... Very tine places with a lot, I mean a lot of things for sale....More

Lots of clothing on canvases on the ground. Canvases on top. Lots of people. Noise. People playing music. Be careful where you walk, there's hardly enough space. Quite an experience.
