I'm not trying to diss the market but in my honest opinion there's nothing special here. I'm reading words like bustling (it wasn't on the Sat I went), large (it's no bigger than a football pitch, maybe two at most) and adrenaline...?? Possibly reflects the...More

Lots of clothing on canvases on the ground. Canvases on top. Lots of people. Noise. People playing music. Be careful where you walk, there's hardly enough space. Quite an experience.

In and outside the marketplace you will find food, vegetables, clothes etc. Even a basket with live pigs! Salespeople are not irritating and give you a chance to look around.

Sucupira Market is a nice place and wasn't as crowded or hot as I expected from a big market like this. We went around 2pm in the afternoon on a Saturday (New Year's Eve though) In fact the streets around were much more busy than...More
