Hippie Market in Rio – Ipanema is considered a chic neighborhood in Rio but since the sixties it has been known for The Feira de Ipanema, also known as the Hippie Market of Ipanema, that has evolved into a major arts and crafts market, showing off the works of some of the city’s best artisans. It is not a flea market, so you won’t find used items or bargain basement prices. There are, however, medium to high quality goods sold at the most reasonable prices.
In addition to arts, crafts, leather goods, paintings, and Tee-Shirts – other assorted cheaper goods are sold. You’ll see Bahiana women wearing traditional Brazilian/African dresses, preparing deep fried Acarajé (mashed peas formed into balls), stuffed with Vatapá (paste made from shrimp and cashews). It’s strong stuff but worth trying if it will be your only chance to eat traditional Bahian cuisine while in Brazil but in Rio de Janeiro.
It’s a mandatory stop for all tourists, Brazilian or foreigners, visiting Rio de Janeiro. Hippie Market in Ipanema is held every Sunday, rain, or shine, from 9am – 5pm.
