Fodor's Review

With four floors and more than 600 stores, this central market stocks a varied selection of northeastern handicrafts and local products, such as castanha de caju (caju nuts). It has elevators to take you from one floor to the next, but since it's built with an open style and has ramps that curve from one floor to the next, it's just as easy to walk up. The place itself is fairly scruffy and it's worth keeping a close eye on your belongings.
