  • Lack too much infrastructure. Today was an unbearable smell. Very dirty. Has no clear structure of wc. The craft meet because it is outweighed by the Rico and beautiful. Bought sarongs, bathing, bijoux and in business. I bought too much cool decor.

  • 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
