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...

Also called the Feira de Arte e Artesanato, this Sunday street market is huge. It's at least 3 or 4 blocks long with many hundreds of vendors selling women's clothing, purses, jewelery, shoes, gifts, and tons of stuff. Very very crowded with locals but not many tourists for some reason. Prices seem good. Also has food vendors with really good... More

Every Sunday morning until about 2pm one can stroll at the hippie fair. It's a huge open air market where they sell furniture, paintings, souvenirs, children's clothes, jewellery, bags & shoes. You can purchase local food & beer. It's definitely worthwhile to visit the largest Sunday market in the entire state. Afterwards you can go for a walk in the... More

Believe: this is one of the most famous street fair in Brazil. In the vicinities of fair you can see many buses with licenses from far states. People come from the south and north of Brazil, thousands of miles! yes!, to buy here and re-sale in their cities. The prices are cheap so the seller "do their party" here. For... More

The highlight, really, is the meat on a stick in the food area! We also enjoyed watching some people doing capoeira (Brazilian dance/fighting). And the park that borders the street is a great place to wander, play, listen to music if there's a band playing, and picnic. Vendors sell cheap jewelry, clothes, house decor, baby items, etc. Not a whole... More

if you like open air markets/ fairs, you will surely enjoy the Hippie Fair that only happens on Sunday morning at Av. Alfonso Pena in front of the Municipal Park. I was there from about 10am and only left at 1pm (only because the man got bored). so, if you are going with male company, do make sure he is... More
