You should visit it when in Mindelo. Nothing extra, but quite interesting to see the sellers and cleaners of the fish. Especially if you come from EU and compare the sanitary standarts 😬

We visited the market while visiting the town. We were on the hunt for a souvenir which we got at a reasonable price. Good selection of souvenirs, fruit/veg, clothing etc. There’s a restaurant/bar in the market which was quite busy. Worth a visit.

Lovely public market with mostly (all?) local produce. Most stations also offer a version (or more) of the local grogue. There is a pretty clean restroom in the NE (more or less) corner (byo tissue and soap). Definitely go upstairs to enjoy the view from...More
