Located between the Benfica and São Cristóvão districts, Cadeg is basically an enormous four story-high cluster of stalls and warehouses representing about 700 different businesses. There one can buy a variety of domestic and imported goods, such as fruits, vegetables, dairy products, flowers, decoration and shipping supplies.
According to Sebrae (Support Service to Micro and Small Companies) figures, about eight people work there, servicing 28 thousand costumers per week, on average.

Erected in 1962, it is Rio’s largest commercial center, and the to-go place for the city’s restauraters. There they can find spices and ingredients used in Italian, Portuguese and Arabic cuisines.
Recently, Cadeg underwent a sort of renaissance, attracting more vendors and more visitors in search of reasonably priced goods and restaurants.

More About
  • Scenes for the Globo TV soap opera "Totalmente Demais", starring Marina Ruy Barbosa, were shot at Cadeg, in 2015;
  • Vendors usually arrive for work there at two in the morning;
  • The Flower Market is an attraction in itself, with long corridors full of seedlings and plants;
  • On Saturdays, there is a traditional Portuguese party in the Concertinas Corner (named after a musical instrument similar to an accordion and used in the Minho region of Portugal) that attracts immigrants, their descendants and anyone else that might be interested in traditional food and dance from that country.
