Green Coconut Stands in Brazil

Yara Berg from Brazil

In the big cities such as Sao Paulo or Rio de Janeiro you will not see food stands everywhere, but you do see them in certain areas like parks, beaches, factories, school exits, or during special events such as parades, open-air concerts, and shows.

For example, if you are in Salvador, a city in the northeast state of Bahia, you will have, in addition to those already mentioned, other kinds of food stands, influenced by the large African Brazilian population.
