World’s Best Food Markets

Municipal Market Of São Paulo

Housed in a building that has stained-glass windows, this one looks more like an art museum than a market. It sells everything from meat, veggies, seafood to cheese, spices and snacks and employs more than 1,500 people. The first floor has various lunch options: Hocca Bar is a local favourite for its salt-cod pastry.

Insider tip: “Try the fresh fruit, from the cacao of Amazon to mangoes from the Bahia coast. Visit Emporio Chiappetta to stock up on cachaça.”

St Lawrence Market – Toronto

This one is popular not just for its produce, but also for its classes on subjects like macaron-making and knife skills. There’s a Saturday Farmers’ market and seasonal festivals like the strawberry one that’s held every June.

Insider tip: “Scheffler’s Deli is a one-stop shop for hard-to-find cheeses and expertly cured meats. Try the samples of duck and pistachio pate and pata negra ham.”
