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.

is a blend of Brazilian soul - crowded, rowdy and
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

I was last there just over three years ago, and some of the vendors (not all) accepted cards, although some would’ve been Visa only, and some Mastercard only. It’s a better idea to simply take cash, although also carry some... More
