The CADEG market, in Benfica, is a living example of what we can call an intense movement of work. The market is a gigantic warehouse that sells fruits, vegetables, flowers and other plants. Traders start arriving at dawn, around two in the morning at the well-known CADEG Flower Market, located inside the huge Centro de Abastecimento do Estado da Guanabara ( CADEG ). An immense spectacle begins, with shipments and shipments of flowers of all kinds.
The prices are as low as possible, as they set up a gigantic fair to sell the merchandise to flower shop owners and other plant and arrangement dealers. A true charm, which leaves even those who say they don’t pay much attention to flowers. Gradually, huge and extensive corridors of many plants and arrangements are formed.
If you like plants and intend to do something different from the usual, pay a visit to CADEG. But go relaxed and ready to watch a real show (of nature, even if inside a shed), we don’t know if we admire the stark beauty of the flowers or the sense of humor and the will of these humble traders who are there, without fail, every night. and day, completing another day of hard work.
Maybe they don’t even have time to notice the vivid colors and beautiful shapes of flowers and plants. They must hardly realize that they are responsible for much more than a trade, but, to the attentive eyes, for a beautiful set-up, an atypical and extraordinary presentation, and a lesson in enthusiasm and hardworking spirit.
