We visited this municipal market on the outskirts of Rio, for the Flower and Plants section, which was varied, extensive in range and an amazing experience. Nowhere in the world would you see such a wholesale market for tropical plants including orchids, bromeliads, etc. The...More

Rio's municipal market was great! Full of great stores to buy high-quality food, and wonderful restaurants. You'll have your pick of Portuguese, barbecue, hamburgers. It was a very nice surprise.

I wouldn't say Cadeg is a tourist attraction. But it could certainly be. At Rio's North Zone, more precisely in Benfica quarter, you'll find our central wholesale market, where restaurants, retailers and many "cariocas" come for shopping. Cadeg is quite famous for its flower market,...More

Went on a weekday, so missed the craziness. From what I understand, a non-touristic location great anyone to get a taste for the Carioca life. Great food options, flowers etc at a great price. Go check it out! Although there are many restaurants, go try...More

Even traveling abroad, visiting a local food market might be interesting... Tasting local food is also a cultural experience - and this is the spirit that should preside your visit, if you choose to do so... You should know that CADEG is not a fancy...More
