This small yet charming store evokes the old quitandas, tiny greengrocers that were very common decades ago in Brazil. Billing itself as a “fruit boutique”, La Fruteria is a place to buy fresh fruits and healthy products, like detox juices or gluten free ingredients. Also you can order to go a cup of fruit salad topped with greek yogurt or granola – perfect match for a hot day in Rio! In the back, there is a tiny cafe that serves whole wheat snacks and Brazilian delicacies like broa de milho (corn bread) or tapioca cake.
