Ver-O-Peso, Belém, Brazil

We like each of our travels to be unique. That said one thing we must do everywhere we go is check out the local market. Especially in cities and countries we've never been to because it's the food equivalent of looking into your friend's purse – you get a totally new perspective and might even uncover a few gems. 

On a recent trip to Belém, Brazil we visited the Ver-O-Peso market, which wins when it comes to markets because it's the largest open air market in Latin America and because it sits at the mouth of the Amazon river, meaning it's got loads of ingredients unique to this part of the country.

Here are some of our favorite flavors we discovered on our visit:
