Fun way to spend an hour or so in the morning

This market is just like any other traditional markets you may see in the world. If you haven't been to a busy, local, and traditional market (not like a supermarket), this is a place to see. But if you have seen many like Grand Bazaar in Istanbul, or any local markets in Asia, then this may not be as interesting... More

This market area is a melee, most of the stores are full of tatty goods with no prices, and you're not safe in the crowd. The cruise lines tell you "Don't wear jewellery; don't carry a camera: don't look like a tourist." Why? Because you're likely to have your pocket picked, your jewellery snatched and your camera stolen. The building,... More

People mostly visit this for the interesting architecture. You can certainly take nice pictures as this market is close to the river. Inside, you can buy a few of the local products, sweets made from local fruits and a lot of artisan gifts. But most of what they carry is pretty generic, some stuff is not even made by the... More

The Municipal market's building, which dates from 1893, is an impressive structure that is worth seeing in Manaus. At one end there is a separate wrought iron building that only sells meat. The market also sells fish as well as vegetables that reaches the market by both road and river boats. There's a restaurant inside the main market.

This is a huge indoor & outdoor market stretching over many blocks. As you wander along you must look at ground level as well as above. Shops and vendors offer everything imaginable and something you can't imagine. Food, crafts, clothing, household goods, all jam packed into this Municipal market. Vehicles are permitted but it is best to wander on foot.... More

This is a good starting place to explore. It sells a lot of herbal products in one area. Majority is different fish/seafood section. The sellers are wearing white uniform. Nice,friendly people. They don't mind taking photos but we still asked first.
