Go there every Sunday!

Lots to see and lots of people to watch, you must go before 1 p.m. tho as they start packing up. A lot of clothes, some furniture and assorted nick nacks.

If you are a tourist in BH, this is a must do. Food, beer, hundreds of venders of all types, and usually someone is putting on a concert.

This is a Sunday morning only flea market. Supposedly, it is all hand crafted items but there are plenty of factory made items in there. Pirated Disney items were popular. It is laid out by items. Kids clothes are all together, leather goods together, shoes, etc. Almost nothing is offered for men except great street food and beer. It's all... More

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

It starts only at 6 am only on Sunday and ends at 2pm. Its nice to go there early like 8 am before crowded. Many arts and decorated things. Many jewel accessories, shoes, bags stores. Price are affordable and things are neat. Very good place to pick up some gifts.

This is a great fun if you like variety, and if you don't mind crowds... There are lots of different things available, from handcrafts, to clothes, shoes, etc and good options of food as well!
