Need a souvenir? The Hippie market features handcrafted jewelry, art, textiles, and other assorted knickknacks to take home with you. Nothing special, but worth a visit if you're in the area on a Sunday.

Sunday is a lot of fun in Copacabana / Ipanema region. Lots of markets around both for locals and tourists. I loved the hippie fair. If you like markets and shopping, this is a must. Lots of nice stuff amoung of course the usual touristy things. I recommend to go early as it gets very crowded in the afternoon.

This art fair (Feira Hipe) is a weekly occurrence in Ipanema, held every Sunday rain or shine. My guide took me here after our venture to Petropolis as we had time to spare. The fair is well organized, with covered souvenir stands on the periphery and the more serious art work on the inside. It took me about five minutes... More

We lived close to the market, so it was fun to see. We would not have gone out of our way to see it - but it was one of the better markets we have seen

Don't listen to other reviews saying this is kitsch, ITS NOT!, extensive market and art fair with some truly glorious hand made items. Yes there are some touristy souvenirs but we are talking over a 100 vendors. Craftsmen the take real pride in their art and it's worth every bit of your time. Loved it!

The fair of artists and craftspeople takes over a city-block sized park in Ipanema, just two blocks off the beach. If you are looking for inexpensive yet bold and colorful art, or for interesting souvenirs, this is a great place to go. Sure, there's some touristy crap, but a lot of the merchandise is artistic and handmade. Plus, there's good... More

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.

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
