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

Tho probably overpriced, was still nice to browse some of the stalls and pickup small inexpensive trinkets/souvenirs. Wish i bought more wish ribbons as gifts, which were only 1 real each...when you order overseas, hipsters will charge up to 5USD for 1. The two food stalls were good, had a nice family atmosphere of ladies running it, and it was... More

A little overpriced as I assume they know mainly tourists visit. Lots of interesting items to see though!

Some exceptional art offerings in the centre of the fair, but also a wide range of other options on the outskirts. Some tasty food offerings also present, particularly the tapiocas 👌🏻

Pretty over-rated. Has unfortunately nothing to do with 'craft' - all products seem to have escaped from some anonymous plants, probably in China. It's there for tourists who understandably are happy to find something different, but hey, it's not worth a visit, or maybe a visit but definitely not worth to spend any kind of money. The local 'crafts people'... More

We stumbled across this market on one of our walks and are so glad that we did. Set in an outdoor square the stalls had a great selection of souvenirs, costume jewellery, nick knacks and crafts. The thing that impressed us the most was the amazing selection of art from local artists. We wanted to buy something for our home... More

Unfortunately I only had a quick trip to this market as it was my last stop in Rio but would have loved more time to explore the local arts and crafts. There was local souvenirs, crafts and paintings as well as imported clothing, bags etc. Some of the art was great and at good prices. Great market, worth the visit.

Thank Lildal
