An old market, the first and only one in the city, busy and alive every day of the week. Packed with some typical restaurants, some of them part of the political city history, they offer the freshest local cuisine. A must.

Like most such buildings in many other Brazilian cities this one is time worn and somewhat grubby, with the usual vast assortment of stalls selling everything imaginable, including stores specializing in chimarrão products, that peculiar gaucho beverage typical to the southern part of the country....More

Good place to visit, eat, buy gifts and souvenirs. Porto Alegre is full of beggars, and it can bother visitors.
