A little of everything
It is a market where you can find a little of everything: fruit, vegetables, meat, fish, and all the typical ingredients of Bahian cuisine like the ubiquitous azeite de dendé (palm oil). There are also decorative objects and objects of Candomblé worship, the Afro-American religion of Bahia. For those who are not too picky about hygiene, it is also a good place to try the local cuisine. It's nothing touristy, and is mostly frequented by locals.
