It is a small fair located in the middle of the Avenida Atlántica. You can find a big variety of souvenirs much cheaper than in local attractions! So you might want to come here first before buying anywhere else. It is set only in the...More

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.

Nothing special, but maybe something that reminds you of Rio or Brazil. Some neat stuff but mostly a trinket stop. Not too aggressive, but hawking you nonetheless. You can skip.

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
