The Hippie Fair Just off Ipanema beach on Sunday, this is a treasure trove of art and local crafts several blocks square. It is a feast for the eyes of textiles, accessories and clothing, with a long and varied outdoor gallery of paintings. All the vendors were smiling and as helpful as could be. We purchased a wall hanging painted... More

The Hippie Fair is the best place to pick up your souvenirs for a bargain. Well worth the visit if you are there on a Sunday.

It's a bit touristy and perhaps not a market you would make a particular trip to, but if you're passing thru or in the area, why not. You can buy some small trinkets (shop around for the cheaper ones) and sample some authentic Bahia food.

Here is the best place to buy handcrafts from the artist themselves. There are hundreds of stores of food, handcrafts, paintings, and souvenir. Its not that expensive, and to get here is very easy as the metro station is right at the entrance.

Also known as the Hippie Market, this is a Rio must-do. It is only open on Sunday. It includes hundreds of vendors selling all sorts of handmade items & food. My favorite is the man who makes things from tiny bits of seashell

It's a nice place to spend a cloudy Sunday at but if the sun is shining then no. A lot of tourists and the things that's for sale is just for tourists. But it's a cheerful place and worth a visit if you have nothing else to do!

This fair has some great artists and jewelry. However, I purchased a large art piece from ARTES BENIGNO AT 99155-2683/3155-8235 (artesbenigno@hotmail.com) in June 2016 and it is October and I still have not received my art delivery in the US. My initial emails were answered sighting a delay due to the Olympics. I have not received any responses since the... More

Arrived at about 4pm. Still going strong. Lots of street stalls selling mainly tourist items and some craft items. Items mostly cheap and worth price comparison. Not much food being sold. Worth the visit as the atmosphere is good.

Thank Rodney C
