This is must go to place in São Paulo, historically important place and great for shopping. Not the safest area though, so be careful with your belongings and always aware of your surroundings. The Mortadela sandwich or Cod Fish 'pastel' (bacalhau) are famous food options.

Excellent produce and great food stalls. Had an excellent baloney sandwich from Mani (can’t remember the spelling...). Only one needed per pair!

It's a huge food, fruits, drinks market with lots of local shops around. It's very vibrant and interesting to see. I suggest to go with taxi / uber. The surrounding area is not the safest neighbourhood.

To truly know São Paulo, you have to start at the old
centre, full of history and landmarks with stories to
tell. Get a taste of local food at the Municipal
Market, and if you are brave enough, head to the
crowded shopping street “25 de março” for cheap deals
on a wide assortment of items. Beautiful buildings in
this area include the Post Office Building, Luz
Station, Pagé Gallery, Pateo do Colegio and the iconic
