Lovely market run by professionals and the artists who have made the goods. Really nice atmosphere, very relaxed and good for families. You will find many good quality and unique items and can bargain to a degree. If you want to get some tasteful and special gifts this is a good bet. The area around the market has several good...

We decided to go here because I had read about it in a travel guide. We were very cognizant of potential pickpockets, a concern that remained with us throughout our trip and thankfully was unrealized. We walked around the big square. My sons bought a decorative box, and had popsicles. It began to rain, then pour. The boys played at... More

Lots of locals sell their wares at the hippie fair. But, understand that they see tourist coming from a mile away. I would encourage you to haggle with them over prices. But, the items that you find there are made my local artisans and won't be found anywhere else in Rio!

Highly recommend a Sunday trip to the hippie market. You can take the Metro and step right to it. Lots of leather goods, art, clothes and jewellery etc. Also food stands. Its also an easy walk down the beach back to Copacabana.

If you find yourself in Rio on a Sunday you MUST go to the hippie fair in Ipanema. It is a fantastic place to find low cost, quality souveniers, as well as unique finds for yourself. We were lucky to be in Rio over two Sundays and we went each time. The location is easy to reach whether in Ipanema,... More

This is a must see if you want to buy well priced art for your home. Also a great place to buy things like rugs or traditional wooden toys for kids. Happens every Sunday!

The shops are arranged in two circles around a park while inside the circles artists display their paintings for sale. If you need to buy small artifacts for your family, this is the pefect place and... More

Only on Sundays every week, this is a great place to check out crafts, paintings, clothing, musical instruments, a zillion souvenirs and some very good authentic Brasilian food, too! I've bought several paintings over the years... the artists will take canvas off the frame, roll it up and pack into a cardboard tube suitable for carrying on plane home... Great... More

with little expectation I visited here. Quaint pictures and items were there. I didn't buy anything, but it's good to get around.

This craft show along the Ipanema beach is so great. You can buy handmade local crafts and clothes for a great price. You have to be careful to do not be robbed but beside that is a great place to spend an afternoon. They have several restaurants along the beach and they all serve cold coconut water and it is...
