Mercado Público (Public Market)

Mercado Público (Public Market) Review

Beyond the Museu Histórico de Santa Catarina is the picturesque Mercado Público, a Portuguese colonial structure with a large central patio. Even though the original market was destroyed in a fire in 2005, the recently renovated market—filled with stalls selling fish, fruit, and vegetables—preserves its Arabian-bazaar atmosphere.
