    Mercado Municipal

    by jorgejuansanchez Updated Jul 20, 2016

    This is the first visit that make the tourists arriving by boat to Manaus. According to a plaque in the front, it was build in the year 1882.
    Inside you will find the most exotic products, and not only fish and meat, fruits and vegetables, but also indians medicines plus spices.
    The Tourist Information Office is located inside that market.

    Mercado Publico (public market)

    by maharaja_joe Updated Feb 7, 2007

    Its like the new Orleans flea market, with fish and meat added to the mix. The stuff here is generally cheaper than going to any of those rip-off duty-free shops. Shop around for trinkets and such at this place. You can also get t-shirts, etc for cheap at the stores there. It’s a good place to just walk around and see the local folk in action.

    Directions: In Downtown

    The frantic market

    A must see in Manaus is the Municipal Market. The frantic activity of the men and women that have fish, meat, fruits, vegetables for sale is fantastic. The odors, the movement, the trucks dumping bananas, the natives dumping and loading fishes.

    Was built during the Rubber Boom. It is a copy of the famous "Les Halles" Market in Paris. There you will find a great variety of the regional products such as fish, fruits, maioc flour and handicrafts. Don't miss the new Regional breakfast.

    To see where the fish caught in the Amazon go visit the indoor fish market. It's interesting, but a bit smelly.
