Street Market on Alameda Lorena
São Paulo, 01424-002
Running parallel to the high-fashion street Oscar Freire, the Alameda Lorena street market is a great addition to Brazil's dynamic shopping scene. Open on Sundays until 2p, it stretches between Rua Augusta and Rua Haddock Lobo. On sale are farm-fresh produce, fruits, vegetables, fish, meat, herbs and spices. Local specialties and fast food stalls are popular pit stops. Savor delectable acarajes
(traditional re-fried bean dumplings) and arguably the best pastel
in town (minced meat and cheese wrapped in pastry and deep fried to perfection). The diversity and bustle are synonymous with São Paulo's infectious vibe.
