It's a nice place to spend a cloudy Sunday at but if the sun is shining then no. A lot of tourists and the things that's for sale is just for tourists. But it's a cheerful place and worth a visit if you have nothing else to do!

This fair has some great artists and jewelry. However, I purchased a large art piece from ARTES BENIGNO AT 99155-2683/3155-8235 (artesbenigno@hotmail.com) in June 2016 and it is October and I still have not received my art delivery in the US. My initial emails were answered sighting a delay due to the Olympics. I have not received any responses since the... More

Great street art market which takes place every Sunday. There is a lot of stands - gifts, shirts, shoes, jewelry, food, arts etc. Try tapioca with coconut and condesed milk!! It was delicious! Nice market where you can buy anything!

Arrived at about 4pm. Still going strong. Lots of street stalls selling mainly tourist items and some craft items. Items mostly cheap and worth price comparison. Not much food being sold. Worth the visit as the atmosphere is good.

Located at Praca General Osorio, which is the same square as the main entrance to General Osorio metro station. About 2 mins' walk from Arpoador beach (which is between Ipanema and Copacabana). We were there about lunchtime and already some traders were starting to pack up for the day. The stalls were tightly packed, the walkway was crowded but there... More

Really like the fair. I found different things there then at the market on Copacabana. There is a place where they serve local food. I did not eat it but it was worth looking at all the local foods. People were very friendly and they offered good deals. I bought a ceramic Christ the Redeemer that I only found at... More

Unless you live in an area with zero street markets, there's no real reason to visit this one. Just a lot of mass-produced junk with the occasional artist in between the other stalls. If you happen to be in Ipanema on a Sunday, why not? But I didn't think it was worth spending a subway fare on.

This market is open on Sundays in Ipanema by the metro station. The space is not big but they fit an amazing amount of vendors here. You can find everything from touristy souvenirs to beautiful paintings. The hardest part is figuring out how to get it home. Lots of good food too. Gets very crowded but fun.

This is a small fair that fits in a park - maybe 50 or so stalls, mostly selling art and clothing. It seemed pretty much like many other fairs I've been too, thus the 3-star "average" rating. I only saw 1-2 food stands, which was disappointing. Coming from the U.S., I guess I was just expecting something bigger, different and/or... More
