A popular Sunday market for handicrafts, jewelery, clothes, paintings etc.

Welcome to Ipanema's Hippie Fair. This event takes place every Sunday, and it is a great place to pick up a variety of items. Now this fair has decades of history and hundreds of stands. You can find anything here: jewelry, clothing, leather goods, or a comfy new seat. But do not worry about fitting this on the plane, they take all the filling out, give it to you, and then you can refill it when you get home.

Also, the center of the plaza turns into a temporary art gallery. You can pick out your favorite picture and get it wrapped to go. This is a great skirt for dancing forro, which is a dance that came from the northeast, but it is popular in all of Brazil now. For the little ones back home, you can pick up some really cute shirts or some baby booties. Look at this. They have got a map in stone. Brazilian artisan jewelry is one of my favorite things to pick up here, at the Hippie Fair. For example, these earrings, if you are feeling particularly patriotic, pick up a pair yourself. These are wax necklaces. They are actually a little thread enclosed in wax. It is really interesting. It has a little different texture to it, and definitely a good option.

If you are looking for some nicer jewelry, they also have a great variety of silver products and you can pick out the rocks yourself. Now, on every corner of the Hippie Fair there's a stand of Bahian food. They have Acaraje, which is a traditional dumpling with shrimp, and they also have a variety of desserts. What he is playing right now is called the Berimbau. Expert, expert. I will leave it up to the professionals in this case. This is where we are. I am Marisa Collins, and I am showing you Rio de Janeiro.
