Municipal Market, Manaus
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.
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.

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.
Please don't miss the market and their market food. Great guarana and fried paiche, mmmm
You can also enjoy the view of the Amazon basin and crafts, a tad overpriced but nice to look at
