  • The fruits and vegetables have excellent prices. Really cheap, it's worth it. It has diverse tents, it is good to take a general look before stopping at any, to find the best price. It has bars with oriental products like kimchi, bifun, lotus blossom root and some plant brracas. We've always been well attended. I don't think it's worth buying fish and bulk items, I found it a little pricey. But for fruits, vegetables, vegetables, it's amazing. Parking that is annoying, because the easiest is to stop in a car park. It costs around R $25.00, but even with the parking price, the value of the purchase is much cheaper than in the supermarket. Important to go early! It has ATM

  • One of the strongboxes of natural ingredients without pesticides or mass productions that the city still offers in the center. There are vegetables, vegetables, fruits and also fish in the only local fish where there are available roe fishes, known as poutargue or fish heads disputed by the Koreans and dispensed by Brazilians who only seek the filet. The market was once a train station that brought passengers to the capital at the beginning of the last century, is abandoned as the entire central region by the countless mayors who occupied the positions for decades and that was already very important when the railroad was the middle Fastest transport in São Paulo. The interesting thing about the market is the profusion of vegetables that were consumed by the Paulistans at the beginning of the last century as the pumpkin of water, or the bitter cucumber, very common since the bitter was synonymous with good digestion and abandoned after the post-war. Sprouts of chuchus, sweet potato or even chrysanthemums to be braised in the attempt to supply the Korean tables. Fruits that come from northeastern Brazil and also on a smaller scale according to the production of the Atlantic Forest. Various tubers like sweet potato-orange or purple reported by travelers like Gandavo about 5 types and colors that have been lost over time. The market is changing to worse, it will become gourmetized as the municipal market that sells foreign or foreign fruits to us São Paulo as the Graviola or even the pineapples that meet up to Central America with prices for tourists. Today the biggest consumers in the market are the Koreans and the Chinese who use up to four types of vegetables in their family meals, which we have abandoned this habit long ago. The market and its producers with small production, often from the Periurban land surrounding the city. São Paulo believed that having backyard and plants would only serve to give "work" and dirt. In a city that indexes of depression, drug abuse, misery lie beneath this commercial shell instilled and obeyed by the citizen whether he was born here or incorporated is alarming the image that other opinions have of how the markets should be. On the other side of the Av. Do Estado We have the Pari, which is the continuation of the station where they converged the trains, abandoned and scrapped by the "Feirinha of the Dawn". Another interesting thing is the Persian restaurant all surrounded by trusses with artificial foliage giving the sensation of island, where the Arab community meets for lunch which is quite interesting to see women with their handkerchiefs and men with their beard and dialect Native. The restaurant offers as a meal of the day, an interesting rice with harissa and a delicious kafta or chicken and accompanying salad. A dish can be divided and the price is very cool just to meet those who work for the region and can not spend much or who goes shopping and lunch time has arrived. The rest of the restaurants are weak with pre-processed food as pre-cooked pasta ready to receive the sachet sauce or else the fillet of frozen tilapia, nothing appetizing or with a few, in fact are snack bars like the hundreds scattered around the surroundings, Chaotic care, slow, food requayed.
