  • My experience of eating and buying in Mercadão is good. It is a place where I like to eat the delicious oysters, (floor 0, House of Oysters), with a few beers, or climb to the first floor and choose between the various restaurants. Of course, some are better than others, but the ones I ate, I was fine. Good place to buy various fruits and exoticas, the price of fruits is really high, the friendliness is always very large by the sellers. Good place to buy in addition to the fruits, the cod, the cheeses, the dried fruits, the sausages, the fish, finally, an excellent place to visit, eat and shop. I'll come back whenever I can.

  • Nice place to visit. If you go to the fruits just try the fruits and enjoy but don’t buy anything. Especially if you look European they will ripp you off. Then wanted for 2 little bags of fruits 1300R$ or 300€. They are completed out of reality...
  • Nice to see, great food shops, but just don’t try to buy anything... especially the fruit people are a disgusting ripoff. No matter how hard one tries to follow on what you request - you’ll carry home what they decide to pack, not what you chose - for a price that’s beyond human understanding. (🍍 RS 80???) And they will make sure that you cannot see moulded spots or get fruit that are not what they had you taste. Really a nice market, but it leaves you feel disappointed and not appreciated as a tourist. Be bold and take pictures, no matter what, and ignore the barkers brazenly. You’ll regret it otherwise.
