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.

This is a traditional hippie fair that works on Sunday at Ipanema Neighborhood. You will find things to buy and to eat. I love the plate ACARAJÉ, witch is originally from Bahia, and it"s delicious. If you are not going to Salvador you must try this in Rio. Great fair, perfect for artisanal gifts and typical things from Brazil.

Go for a colourful view of Brazilian handcrafts, some cheap and some expensive works, and great food from Bahia. Open on Sunday mornings and right next to the beach

Diverse stalls and extremely colourful. Everything from cow hide furniture to perspex serviette holders!! Art in the centre around the fountain is great. Prices good and open to negotiation. Well with a visit.
