Central market with cheese, sweets, fruits, vegetables, meat and everything to know better a city culture. Good food and beer. Artcraft, stones and other gifts.

Part of Belo Horizonte cultural life, the market is a place to visit and try a bit of the delicious regional Minas Gerais food. Cachaças, sweet and cheese are some of the specific food.

You find local cheases and several herbs used to cook, as well as all kinds of kitchenware (local products), coffee, meat, drinks. You can enjoy a bar like service, meal or snaks. It is crowded and prices are not low. Fruits and vegies are fresh.

Great place to check local products. A great variability of fresh fruits and veggies too. Not cheap, but worth it. If you are up to beer and appetizers, there are many bars (cheap) to go too. If you want to have lunch, try Casa Cheia!...More
