Why locals love it

The Benedito Calixto square is just another normal place on weekdays, but turns into one of São Paulo's coolest spots on saturdays. Locals go to the market held there looking for all sorts of items - especially antiques. Plus, the square surrounding is full of places where you can have great food, shop for trendy items and check out art galleries

Why you should visit it

Going to this market is simply one of the best things to do on a São Paulo saturday afternoon. You can have great traditional food from all around Brazil, see some antiques or fashion items and meet new people on this place where things from all cultures and sorts mix in a local style

Special tip

From 14:30 to 18:30 there's a band playing "chorinho" (brazilian music style from the 19th century) on the square that is worth checking!

On Saturdays, from 9am till 4pm, a place where you can find good street food and some good restaurants around, and also a flea market with antique and new stuff.

Really cool atmosphere, but the prices are expensive for the quality of the products

Visit this place on saturdays at mornings (11 am- 14 am) and enjoy the old market that offers manual arts, used books and lps/cds, old clothes and decoration pieces. Near, there are coffes, restaurants and bars.
