Shopping Streets

The streets of Rio are home to diverse shops, fairs, and markets. Ipanema has a mix of upscale and bargain shopping areas, the former being Rua Garcia d’Avila and Rua Maria Quiteria, the latter being Rua Visconde de Piraja and the famous Hippie Market. Head to Barra de Tijuca and Leblon to find bigger, more expensive brands and various shopping malls. To get a taste of the true Carioca shopping experience, visit the city's markets and fairs in Lapa, São Cristóvão, and Centro: there you will find, respectively, the Feira do Rio Antigo, the Feira Nordestina São Cristóvão, and the Mercado Popular da Uruguaiana.


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.
