Find here the lowest prices in Rio. In the heart of the city center, just a few meters from Uruguaiana and Presidente Vargas Metro stations. The market is the area between Rua Uruguaiana and Praça da República, along three of for streets, such as Rua da Alfandega, Rua Senhor dos Passos and Rua Buenos Aires, and it is usually crowded, specially on the weeks before Carnival, Christmas or Mothers' Day (early May). However, it's really worth it to pay a visit. You will find lots of cheap chinese junk, of course. And some other shoppers might bump you with their bags. Except from that, Saara is a vivid place, very colorful and where you may find things that you have never seen. I don't recommend the part near Rua Uruguaiana, where the tents are, because everything there is fake. The best part - speacially if you are looking for price and quality altogether - is the one where there are real stores. There you can find souvenirs, gold and silver quality jewels at the jewelry shops, clothes (specially for the ladies), crafts in wood or rattan... You can also have a nice snack at a Casa Pedro store. Ask there for a kibe and a esfiha. Then, go inside and ask for some authentic large brazil nuts (say "castanha do pará grande"). You will love it!
