Fair



Once a week, a street market where people can buy fruit, meat and vegetables takes place on a street in the neighborhood. The districts in São Paulo are very large (remember we have a population of nearly 10m), so there's more than one fair in each neighborhood, although in alternate days.

You can see in the picture not only my two nieces and my dog, but also a sign that says the day such fair takes place (Tuesday, in this case) and the time (from 4 am, when the trucks start parking so people can set their stands until morning, to 2 pm, when the street's suppposed to be all cleaned up). For 10 hours no cars are allowed.

Fruits and vegetables are usually cheaper in such street markets and they come fresh from CEASA, which is the largest distributor of such goods in all Latin America (as far as I know).



Also, notice how we use military time here. 24 hours on our clocks.
