I wanted to give a 3 star because I am not really into flea markets --- however the variety and layout of the vendors was pretty incredible. All very well organized with like-type products all in the same area. It is HUGE - and there is no close parking so be prepared to walk or take a taxi. The locals... More

Huge variety of products, not only crafts but accessories and clothes as well. I guess the market draws a lot of tourists but there are lots of locals there as well. Seems like the sunday fun in Belo Horizonte! It feels genuine and it is cheap. Traditional Brazilian feira (street market) and so much fun to stroll there and watch... More

I love this place BUT you must get there before 9am because it gets too crowded. Do not take little kids with you (teens are ok) and plan to spend at least two hours if you like crafts. Local food are available for purchase. As any crowded place, be careful with your purse.

This is a traditional street fair in Belo Horizonte (known tenderly as BH). It takes place every sunday, early in the morning (there are exhibitors there from 6 am) and it ends mid-afternoon (4 pm or so). This fair takes place litterally in the avenue (called Afonso Pena, the broadest in the city), so it's a bit peculiar and, therefore,... More

Interesting to know, bordering a beautiful park and cultural center. Many products for sale ; clothes, bags, trinkets but not all are crafts. Go early in the morning to avoid crowds.

The Hippie Market was the highlight of our trip to Belo Horizonte. We enjoyed our walk there from our hotel near Patio Savassi and tried to negotiate a route with the least uphill climbing. It was very pretty. It was great to find somewhere that was open on a Sunday morning as we were shocked to find most of the... More

It's in my hometown and I go there once in a while since ever. If you are a traveler and like to get close to people, go there. It's crowded, crazy, wonderful. Be aware of the hot sun and the "quick hands" (they come from nowhere). Great place to have a beer and get to try some of typical brazilian... More

WOW, shopping mecca for the ladies! Great place to buy hand made leather shoes, purse, jewelry, all sorts of hand crafted goods and food to keep you going. Watch the quality as there are some really good stuff but also some really cheap product. Strongly recommend getting there really early (6 to 7am) as it gets really busy as the... More

Had a day off on business trip and a couple of us had a wander down to the Sunday market I had spotted on TripAdvisor. Some great art stalls and fantastic food. We had just eaten and wished we hadn't so we could sample some of the food on offer. Very busy and a walk around the park with it's... More

If you want to mingle with the locals, eat local food, buy local products at great prices, that's the place to go. It seems to work from 8am to 2pm, so I'd recommend going around 10 am (Sundays only) and shop, eat and enjoy it. All cab drivers know where to go, it is located downtown Belo Horizonte. It was...
