Fodor's Expert Review Mercado Central

Belo Horizonte Fodor's Choice

In the more than 400 stores in this beautiful old market dating from 1929 you can find typical products from Minas Gerais such as cheese, guava and milk sweets, arts and crafts, household trinkets, medicinal herbs and roots, and countless varieties of cachaça, the Brazilian sugarcane spirit. Everyone from municipal workers to local celebrities stop by the popular bars inside the market to drink beer and sample the notable appetizers, such as liver with onions. The market is particularly crowded on Saturday.
