I am not a shopping fan. And I do not like crowded places. I don't want to sound sexist, but I think this is mostly for women and also for those who enjoy haggling and finding a bargain.

Hippie Market only runs Sunday mornings until 11:00 am, so go early to enjoy the rows upon rows upon rows of tents filled with a large variety of clothing, shoes, bedding, crafts, etc. Market is several blocks long and very well organized. Food concessions are the beginning of market so make sure you try some local foods and a cold... More

nice place to shop for good goods and nice bargains. Lots of possibilities. I usually go there at around noon, when the fair is at the end because it wont be too crowded anymore.

This was a great way to be immersed in the local culture. My wife and I visited on a Saturday afternoon, picked up some freshly made coxinha, a brahma beer, Guarana, and strolled through the streets memorized by all of the local vendors. One of my favorite things was just to see alll of the various types of street foods... More

This is a Sunday morning event, it goes until the afternoon, but to get the fresh stuff, get there early. It happens right there in the middle of Afonso Pena Ave., which is closed to vehicle traffic on Sundays am. It is a very colorful place, with all kinds of artists and foods. The prices are on the cheap side,... More

Easy access, some interesting vendors with local arts and crafts. I've been here a couple times and it's a nice way to hang out when laying over in Belo.

It start very early and ends around 2 AM. If you want to avoid the crowd it is a good thing to be very early. You'll find lots of things. Don't let the name trick you, not everything is art and craft, you can fin cheap Chinese products, pants, bras and whatever you can think about. Still, it is fun.... More

From entertainment to food and clothing, this hippie fair has it. This is every sunday. Starts quiet early around 6am to about mid afternoon. Come enjoy different crafts, jewelry, clothing etc. But be careful of the food being sold. Not all are well cooked and can give you a stomach bug or something
