two bus stops away

 

Welcome to downtown! On my days off I love taking a little trip to the center. There’s always a ton of people and lots of hustling and bustling… Here people rule the streets, fruit and newspaper stands on every corner, lots of cafes and Rua dos Andrados has all the shopping you could want!

Probably one of the most recognizable buildings in Porto Alegre, this is the Public Market. It’s huge! Built in 1869, it’s a great place to go grocery shopping, even if it does smell a bit like fish!

This is the inside. The bottom floor is shops that sell all sorts of produce, meat, nuts, seasonings, baking supplies, sweets, breads, etc. It also has an artesan section with lots of handmade items. The top floor is all restaurants.
