Mercado Central

Market in Fortaleza

Mainly geared to a tourist clientele, the three-story central market has good prices at more than 500 stalls that sell everything from leather bags and colorful palm baskets to excellent local cashews and a huge variety of cachaça – some bottles have fruit salad or crabs pickled inside. You might find a desirable curio. There's an ATM on the top floor.
