Time: 11am ~ 5pm

The Mobile Museum - Red Market x Drunken Dragon Festival

The Red Market Building was completed in June 1936. Covering an area of 1450m2, it was located at the intersection of Avenida Horta e Costa and Avenida Almirante Lacerda. The market was designed by Júlio Alberto Basto and originally named Almirante Lacerda Municipal Market. However, owing to the red bricks used on its exterior, the local residents later called it the "Red Market". Everyday the stores in the market are piled up with fresh meat, seafood, vegetables, groceries, dried food and even flowers and cooked food. The cries of the vendors and their surrounding crowds of customers create a vibrant atmosphere in the market, making it a dynamic city.
