This is a small tourist targeted market than sells a variety of souvenirs and crafts including late afternoon. If you are interested in buying last minute overpriced souvenirs this is a good choice

This is not an Artisan market - lets be very clear about that. However it is cheaper than the nearby shops - considerably cheaper. So enjoy it for what it is I say, and don't get caught up in a puritan approach.

There you can buy some memorabilia from Rio and that's it. You won't find food there, there are better options like Ipanema fair.

The rowdy Copacabana is one of the most traditional
and old areas from Rio de Janeiro. This neighbourhood
is a blend of Brazilian soul - crowded, rowdy and
traditional. This neighbourhood has a bit of
everything: bars with music, pubs, street fairs,
chaotic streets, and many shops. All these things and
more live side-by-side. There are options for all
price points and tastes. However, the most powerful

I was last there just over three years ago, and some of the vendors (not all) accepted cards, although some would’ve been Visa only, and some Mastercard only. It’s a better idea to simply take cash, although also carry some... More
