No better than an average flea market and the vendors will not bargin. The prices were no lower than some of the stores in Copacabana. Certainly well below our expectations after reading other reviews before making our way to this market. Could be a waste of your time.

Great to visit, lots of hand made goods and souvenirs. People are willing to make a deal too if you insist on a little discount :)

It´s very interesting specially if you don´t want to be only on Copacabana beach so you have the opportunity to see more of its neigbourhood spirit and people by wandering around that fair on Sunday mornings. For sure, you can also find something very unique and interesting to buy and bringing home to remember your days in Rio

If you find yourself in Rio on any other day than Sunday this is where you should do your gift shopping in Avenida Atlantica. They are usually open from about 6pm until midnight.
