  • As always the handicraft has a few shops, prices, and sellers without much goodwill.

  • Of course, the Islanders "Fame" deserved more. There's a lot of junk made in China. But if you are considerate of to pan. Favors has thousands and priced well. Shirts too. What always take for friends are the typical food, rum cakes, cocoa, cocoa liqueur, candied fruit. Panning you will find rustic chandeliers made by local artisans, crochet, small factories and chocolates pretty tasty with much better price than the famous and expensive "homemade chocolate". It's quick and simple visit.

  • Islanders, for being part of the route of cruise ships, deserved a larger craft market and more thought. Small tents and little variety. One bright spot for the nets and lace. Lack atmosphere with typical food.

  • 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
