“Fun place for Brazilian Made Crafts”
Reviewed November 21, 2012

I got the treat to walk around the faire after reading about it and being told by friends I must go. We walked around a small park and saw several small vendors selling everything from wood beads to beautiful leather tooled Paintings. The prices were fair but there is no haggling for a better price. What they say is the price is the price. The prices are fair and the leather goods are very nice. Belts, sandals and leather jewelry is in abundance. Made for a nice Sunday afternoon. Lots of nice places to eat around here too. We at Banana Jacks which had a decent but decadent Cheddar Cheese Burger. I reccomend the faire and keep your eyes out for the "Carmen Meranda" lady...she's a hoot! Also the bakery stall in the far corner is YUM!

“Interesting Experience”
Reviewed November 8, 2012

We were told to visit the Hippie Fair in Ipanema because it was one of the few things that is open on Sunday. While most of the booths contained the usual tourist type items, we did see a few interesting things. It was worth a visit.

“Interesting place”
Reviewed October 25, 2012

The hippie craft market was an interesting place to visit. I was a tourist so many of the items were impractical to buy eg the paintings wouldn't pack well in a suit case and many of the crafts were made of wood or plant matter so couldn't be brought in to Australia. The items I could bring back eg leather goods were of fairly poor quality. So the Hippie Market wasn't great for purchases, but an interesting place for browsing.

“My kinda shopping!”
Reviewed October 15, 2012

My second visit to the Feira de Hippie, just a few blocks from the Copacabana Beach. Prices were good. Learn to say "discount" and you can probably save yourself an instant 10 per cent. Most merchants willing to bargain a bit, but their stuff is good quality so don't be pushy. I bought buriti handbags, silver earrings, beaded choker, and carved wood art. Save room for some of the Feira food, especially the desserts!

“Ipanema Hippie Market”
Reviewed September 17, 2012

Must visit for shoppers. While the deals are not that great, the variety is amazing. Very little to no bargaining but the quality of products is very good. Be sure to allow ample time to enjoy the shopping experience.
