Our tour guide recommended this Fair to us. Although we were staying in the Copacabana area, we were able to walk to the hippie fair. It was a delight to buy authentic Brazilian items and meet the people who made them!

I love this market which is held on Sunday's. There are many stalls selling everything from souvenirs and trinkets, to jewelry, to leather goods. Close to the fountain are a variety of artworks which are always a pleasure to stroll past and take in the vibrant colors. A very nice place to visit if you can.

First I saw the kiosks with the food pretending to be from bahia ,and the food was overpriced compare to the fruits and vegetables market in Copacabana, for example a cocada(sweet coconut ) was 5 reais in Copacabana was 2. The mayority of the vendors sale stuff you can see everywhere because it is wholesale, they buy it,they don't make,only... More

The Hippie Market is only open on Sundays, and having stayed nearby in Ipanema, I decided to take a stroll down the beach to see what it was all about. It was WONDERFUL! Tons of great little booths - some with the same tourist items you could find anywhere in the city, but many MANY with unique items that made... More

I have been many times to the Hippie Fair over the years. I have bought leather floor cushions get the poly beads when you get home. Garden swings made of fabric and wool with a wooden frame, a joy to sit in.

This was my last stop in Rio. The weather was beautiful and it was an enjoyable way to spend a Sunday morning. I walked around for over 90 minutes. In the otter ring there is jewelry, leather goods, and clothing. Closer to the fountain there is art from a ton of different vendors. Everyone in my group bought something. Many... More

I'd read a lot about how wonderful the Hippie Market was, so perhaps I was expecting too much. Our hotel was just a block or 2 away so of course we had to go and see what it was all about. We entered the park, just alongside the Food stall and it all did smell delicious but we'd only just... More

Famous Hippie Fair is open every sunday, you can find art crafts, gifts, food, painting, furnitures, jewelry, etc. Located right at the Square General Osorio where the Ipanema metro station entrance is.

The market is quite accessible (at the eastern edge of Ipanema, so not far from Copacabana). We walked through on the way back from Sugar Loaf and found many of the souvenirs were more expensive than we had seen elsewhere (only a couple of Reals eitger way in most cases). Indeed, many of the trinkets can be found in almost... More

This is one of the worthwhile things to do if you're in the vicinity of the main Rio beaches (Copacabana, Ipanema, Leblon, Sao Conrado) or Lagoa and want to purchase some local items. Some reviews stated that this fair is open weekends, but that is inaccurate, it is only open on Sundays. The website says 07:00 to 19:00 (7AM to... More
