Description:

São Paulo inaugurated the Mercado Municipal in 1933, back when the city had only 1 million inhabitants. Beneath the covered market's high ceiling, balcony and stained-glass windows, hundreds of vendors advertise perishable items of various sizes, colors and prices - from caju (cashew apple) to quejo coalho (cheese curd). An estimated 14,000 visitors make their ways through the "mercadão" (big market) every day. Many stop to take seats at lunch stalls serving the market's signatures delicacies - mortadella (ham) sandwiches and pastéis de bacalhão (codfish cakes).
