The weekend market at Praça da República - República is well worth a visit, if not for the food alone. International cuisine, including Japanese and Italian, is served up alongside traditional Brazilian street food, or if you would prefer something sweet, the homemade cakes are delicious. As you eat, street performers entertain you with local music and dance, and the atmosphere is electric. Have a wander around the other stalls where you will find an abundance of arts and crafts, most of them authentic and reasonably priced. Praça da República - República has always been the focal point of cultural life in São Paulo. Historically, locals would meet to watch rodeos and bullfights, but today the square is used for concerts, political rallies, and other events where large crowds are expected. During the week, when the square is quieter, you can take refuge from the sun under the shade of the trees, and relax.

  • Nice park with huge trees and even a small lake. Lots of police and we felt very safe and a very charming weekend market of arts and crafts.  more »
  • It is well worth visiting this square on Sundays as arts and crafts are on sale. The space devoted to the market has been reduced and strolling at your leasure is less attractive!  more »
