  • The site is organized, clean and in the center of the city, well located. However, few local jobs. Most of the craft is common to other places. But it's worth it.

  • I didn't like the handicraft market of Ilhéus. Little craft option and most shops work with clothes and t-shirts. Far from being a good tourist spot.

  • For being a tourist town visited Islanders deserved a better place for the stallholders selling their crafts, I found a very bad.

  • Lugar bacana.
  • Muito bom.
  • Ilhéus, como um todo, está abandonado. Péssimo em receber os turistas, o comércio da cidade simplesmente é inexistente. Nesse mercado, para se ter uma idéia, fomos visitar num sábado, às 14h, apenas 4 barracas abertas, sem nenhum artesanato local, coisas que comumente encontramos em qualquer local, péssimo atendimento e preços altos. Não indico e com certeza, não voltarei. É uma pena o que aconteceu com o turismo em Ilhéus. Lamentável.
  • De verdade, deixa a desejar.... Não tem coisas diferentes, tem muitas coisas, tem muitas coisas, q se encontra em qualquer lugar, falta criatividade, até parece q tudo q tem lá pra vender, é comprado fora da Bahia...
  • É uma avaliação de quem não aprecia muito coisas como este tipo de artesanato. Estacionamento difícil. Local pequeno mas com variedade. Próximo ao bradesco. Restaurantes no local. Bom para lembranças baratas
