Mercado Ver-o-Peso

Latin America's biggest open-air market sits alongside the choppy waters of the Guajará Bay and is Belém's quintessential attraction: a working jungle market that assaults your senses at every turn. Catch the morning haul of acai arriving from the jungle, the cracking and shelling of Brazil nuts, the extracting of tucupi from wild manioc root (to remove the cyanide, thanks), the piling up of various exotic river fish—whatever grabs your attention is likely to be wild and wonderful.
