Feira Hippie de Ipanema

In 1968, a group of Brazilian artists started to sell frames at Praça General Osório to help pay the neighbourhood bars' bills. From that year on the event developed and expanded to become one of Rio's most glamorous fairs. At the Feira Hippie, you can find creative artwork, colourful clothes and various cheap handicrafts.


When it comes to shopping, Rio de Janeiro proves to have many opportunities. The city provides a dual shopping experience: modern and international in the big shopping malls and traditional and folkloric in the open-air markets and fairs around the city.
