Peruse Rio’s Outdoor Hippie Market At Ipanema Beach
Rio is one massive outdoor market: coconuts are sold everywhere along the beach, hand-macheted, cold and refreshing for just $5 RS, and tanned bums and muscly pecs are always on display.
But there is another market that comes to Ipanema beach every Sunday, close to Arpoador Rock: Rio’s festive Hippie fair on the square General Osorio, held every Sunday since the 1960's!
Come to find all kinds of local artisan goods: paintings, clothing, vibrant jewelry and fresh regional food, all being peddled with a local flare and a smile. The market starts early and goes until mid-afternoon and is a festival of color.
