Ipanema Hippie Fair

Every Sunday from about 10AM, flower power fills the General Osorio Square as Rio’s most popular market moves in. Overflowing with art, jewellery, shirts, bags and furniture – this is the place to pick up souvenirs. It’s also a great opportunity to sample traditional Bahian cuisine – just try to resist the tempting fumes wafting from the many food stalls.

Farm Rio

Stop by Farm to pick up a slice of cool carioca style. This flagship store in the centre of Ipanema’s high street is famous for its bohemian prints – be prepared for an injection of colour into your wardrobe as friendly staff usher you between row after row of paisley skirts, flowing dresses and spangly accessories.
