Marvellous place to visit as it has one of the most famous beaches.

I've lived in Copacabana between my 15 and 20 years old with my family, around the years 1960. There was fantastic to be in the summun of what is going on in Brazil, with so many... read more

Its a good one with all sort of options. But did not meet my expectations. We can see a lot of stuff like the Tshirts, show piece relating to Rio.

It's conditions are not the best. But they have plenty of souvenirs and other things for you to buy. Awesome prices. If you go to Copacabana, you have to go to this fair. I had a good time and bought a lot of things.

The Copacabana Flea Market is an average flea market that runs in the center of Avenida Atlantica behind Copacabana beach. Usual suspects are available on sale here. Just OK.

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. By shopping in the fairs you save alot of money because you are able to haggle with them to lower the price where in the souvenirs stores... More
