Why locals love it

The Central Market of Belo Horizonte is undoubtedly one of the best municipal markets in the world – except for the animal shops section, my opinion. Founded in september 7th 1929, this traditional indoor market is one of the best representation of the State of Minas Gerais culture.

Why you should visit it

Get lost among a huge selection of goods, such as meats, fishes, fruits, vegetables, pastries, cheeses, candies, spices, spirits, crafts, souvenirs, flowers, seeds, animal feed, coffees... Yes, they have it all and much more! Even hair products! There are also many bars and restaurants offering local food, very cold beer and lots of enthusiasm.

Special tip

If at the entrances one of the bar attendants emerges behind the counter and yells for you offering a beer, why not? Drink it with an appetizer.
