You can embrace the cultural wealth of Minas Gerais with a visit to the Sunday morning Hippie Fair. Established in 1969 to showcase the works of local artists, the market remains a popular meeting place for the community. Now one of the biggest open-air markets in Latin America, there are some 3,000 stalls where you can purchase a whole range of things, from handcrafted furniture to high fashion. While prices are reasonable, haggling is common practice. Make sure you visit the center of Hippie Fair, where you will find the food vendors offering delicious local cuisine and cold beer.

  • Great intersection of cultures can be seen here! Craftspeople, Capoeira, live bands, and more! Get ready for sweet and savory smells of local treats, quality handmade EVERYTHING! Silver, gemstone, clothing, baby decorations, etc. Many vendors take Visa and MasterCard and have a chip reader. Guard your purse and phone well, and come early before the heat and crowds close in. A nearby Parque Municipal offers inexpensive amusement rides, plenty of outdoor festivities and natural beauty to bask in.
  • Amazing! Loved it will go back to it again.
