Distrital do Cruzeiro is a big market in the city. This traditional market offers products of high quality and a bar with a stunning view. However, for the locals of Belo Horizonte, the word market instantly brings to mind the Mercado Central. Rich with history, the market grew with the city.

Shopping Malls

Belo Horizonte's City Hall planned improvement works for the city centre. Among its top priorities was the creation of popular shopping malls, where they put together all ambulant salesmen who were spread out across the city's streets. But planners never imagined that these shopping malls would become so popular! The development of these malls has improved and developed the shopping industry in Belo Horizonte, attracting ever growing public support. Nowadays, popular shopping malls are a great option for purchasing at a good price!
