“Average market with good food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 18, 2013

Review would only be of an average rating if it wasn't for the good food that the ladies sell on the edge of the market. The hippie fair itself is a mixture of tourist souvenirs plus standard jewellery and crafts that you can find in other parts of the world. If you are in the area on a Sunday then have a wander but I wouldn't go out of my way to make it here.

“Lovely! ”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 3, 2013 via mobile

A big fair with a lot of diversity... clothes, art, souvenirs and typical food. The merchants are nice and you can pay with credit card.

“A great craft fair!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 10, 2013

The Hippie Fair is a really fun Sunday event at the Praca General Osorio in Ipanema. It is busy and packed with vendors/artists selling all kinds of crafts as well as the usual tourist items. Almost anything you could think of to buy as a remembrance of Brazil is here. Haggling on the price is acceptable - but done with a sense of humor is always appreciated the most in Brazil. We walked away with bags of treasures and had a great time!

“Art Lovers Don't Miss! Only On Sundays”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 3, 2013 via mobile

My partner and I love art and collecting from our many trips. This market provides so many different types of art that is attainable and rollable into luggage. All art is native to brazil and surely is heart felt and sold by the artist. We chose not to barter too much because we loved what we got. Other crafts available as well, but most are available at other markets as well.

“The hippies have left”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 27, 2013 via mobile

A busy little Sunday market which does have some interesting crafts in amongst the usual tourist fare of TShirts, beach wraps etc. If you look and you will find something different The beach is only a 5 minute walk
