Mercado Público (Public Market)

The Public Market's building is one of the oldest in Porto Alegre. One who looks from outside sees the many rows of identical doors, gateways to endless bars and ice cream shops as old as the town itself. Who enters the Public Market is soon overwhelmed by the hassle of the crowd busily buying, selling and looking for food and other goods.
