Market restaurant is hidden away down a thin alleyway from the neighborhood’s bustling main road Rua Visconde de Piraja. Serving fresh local dishes in a lively little restaurant complete with a garden, it is a good choice for a healthy breakfast or lunch. Using only fresh ingredients, Market prides itself on creating novel combinations, as well as freshly made juices and cocktails. Unlike many of its contemporaries, Market also offers an extensive number of vegetarian options, making use of protein-rich ingredients such as quinoa and lentils.
