Centro de Artesanato, Barreirinhas

2.5
#5 of 7 in Shopping in State of Maranhao
A small crafts market, Centro de Artesanato sells handmade straw articles, from sandals and hats, to popular tote bags, wall decorations, rugs, table covers, and even lamp shades. All make excellent gifts and souvenirs, and are sold by local artisans at low prices. These regional artists are renowned for using a special kind of straw, made from a native tree called buriti. You can also buy local liqueurs here, as well as various types of regional food. Close to the center of town, this simple market is worth a short stop on a hot afternoon.

  • Worth a visit, but don't expect a lot of diversity. The prices are good and you can get some play to keep as a souvenir of the place

  • Offers local crafts, but many options. But worth the stroll through the stalls well organized and your surroundings

  • For those who like to take souvenirs and objects for home is a place with crafts of all kinds. Handbags, walkways, flowers for hair, wallets, all done with the buriti fibre.
