Best place to buy fishes is japopesca! It's the only place in Porto Alegre to find fresh fish if you want to make sushi at home. Also their are some nice shops for coffee and Frits,... I like the market, but it is expensive!

Not all local public marketplaces are recommended, but Porto Alegre's market is one of those exceptions. Good restaurant options can be found offering very fresh options (Fish, Sushi, Meats, Etc.). Always crowded by the locals, as it is centrally located. A great experience for anyone...More

This place is a must go. A mixed of food market with Brazilian religious articles and great place to eat. Go to banca 40 and enjoy a delicious fruit salad with cream. Buy traditional gaúcho things and organic herbs.
