São Paulo - Municipal Market, Brazil

Here is a partial view of "Mercado Municipal" (Municipal Market), in Downtown São Paulo, an impressive building, built from 1928 to 1932, by famous architect Francisco de Paula Ramos de Azevedo. Apart from the phenomenal display of brazilian and imported fruits, vegetables, cheese and other products, the market is most noted for its 55 big stained-glass windows depicting scenes of cattle raising, market gardening and coffee and banana plantations.
