Shopping at Rio’s CADEG Market

One of Rio de Janeiro’s hidden treasures is tucked away in the Zona Norte, far from most traditional tourist attractions (with the notable exception of the Quinta de Boa Vista, a gorgeous park constructed in the 1800s by the Brazilian imperial family, and today home to the National Museum). A gastronomic delight and paradise for shoppers, culture lovers and people watchers, is the CADEG (KAH-deh-gee) market, the biggest wholesaler in the city.

CADEG, or the Centro de Abastecimento do Estado da Guanabara (Supply Center of Guanabara State), isn’t exactly tourist friendly. The 100,000-square-meter (more than one million square feet) behemoth market is primarily a wholesale outlet with more than 350 shops supplying Rio’s restaurants and hotels.
