Rua Capitão Felix 110, Benfica

See Website

The Municipal Market of Rio is all business, busy and filled with a wide variety of flowers, fruits, vegetables and cooking equipment. The action peaks between 2 a.m. and 9 a.m., when virtual forests of tropical foliage are moved from trucks to the waiting stands (where the flowers are sold at cut-rate prices). But CADEG is also loaded with very good restaurants, such as Barsa (Rua Capitão Félix, 110, rua 4, lojas 4 e 6,55 (21) 2585-3743), a casual and cool place serving great lamb and codfish. Open from 1 a.m. to mid-afternoon, Monday through Saturday, and until 2 p.m. on Sundays and holidays. Most stalls close by lunch time.
