    I know that there are some 40 years fair, at least. She occupies the same place on praça General Osório and occasionally changes the position in the tents. You can find the paintings with works of various types in the center of the square. The typical foods (and some not so typical as well) are near the Visconde de Piraja and Jangadeiros. Leather goods, many good quality like handbags, sandals and belts, are along the Prudente de Morais. The rest of the square you will find other crafts like jewelry, dolls, t-shirts to tourists, etc. If the weather is good, a lot of people are going to show up, even people who live in the area. It's not just or tourists who frequent the area. For lunch you can choose between various restaurants that are on the street, outside the Jangadeiros feira Hippie. Has specialized in brazilian food and one that specializes in feijoada. If it is, jump on the Metro General Osório station that has one of its outputs literally inside the square, next to the fair.

    Great little market in the plaza near General Osario with an assortment of unique offerings. Well worth a visit, although they could do with some more food options.  more »

    Fair that takes place on Sundays at Praça General Osório, right at the entrance of the Metro station. The fair is well diversified, with clothes, handbags, art and souvenirs of the city, jewelry, leather goods, and all with great rates

    Not much to see. You have to pay entrance fee 5R$ just to enter the market. On the other hand it's ok because you can find all you can eat buffe restaurants with reasonable prices if you negotiate...

    Great local artists. We found a wonderful carved artpiece and got it at a great price. Never take the first price. Check with airline about carryon on larger pieces as I had to check the item into baggage at the airport.

    The Hippie fair is quite close to Ipanema beach, so if you are so lucky, that you can be in Rio on Sunday, do not miss it. Although the market is the treasure of the local art crafts, but the best of the bests is the Acaraja with shrimp. As tasty as it looks like. Try it!

    Open Sundays, a fun place to get a Brazilian souvenir, I found a tarp hat for 30 reals which was super fortuitous because I wanted to bring one back and this was literally the one place I came across one. As flea markets go this one was pretty big with all kinds of neat stuff, local art, trinkets, accessories, clothes. Bring a lot of smaller bills, it helps with the bargaining.

Where to stay in Rio de Janeiro

Accommodations in Rio de Janeiro cover as diverse a spectrum as the city itself. At the top end, you can find plenty of luxury hotels along the beaches of Zona Sul, the city's southern zone, which includes the renowned Copacabana and Ipanema beaches. For something to suit a budget, but with good beach access, look around the less crowded neighborhoods of Catele and Flamengo. If you want to stay as centrally as possible, without feeling like you're in a business district, look for lodgings in the colorful, bohemian neighborhood of Santa Teresa.
