There are endless food options typical of both the regions and Rio, but almost all places only offer food in quantity. It is always served for 4, 6 or 8 people and the price is very good (it is possible to eat a lot for only £20.00 per head). The ticket is $5 in normal days and $10 in days with specific attractions, and in some moments it is possible to enter for free.

Good energy in place, very colourful, many varieties of products, musical attractions, friendly people, has exceptions, but the vast majority of people in the stalls are nice.
I love this place, and as a tourist destination, it's a little bit off the beaten path. However, this doesn't mean that it's still not worth the visit. Make sure that you arrive here by uber or a taxi. Public transport options are a no-go to get here. It has an authentic local atmosphere, and people are friendly and welcoming. Expect lots of interesting gift shops and souvenirs, but aside from this you can also sample delicious Brazilian fare, from the north-east of Brazil. Expect grilled meats, well cooked barbecue and other local treats.
SO fun! It is hard for a tourist to navigate this place, but if you get a chance to go there with local friends, must go. Everyone is having fun, eating delicious food, and dancing all night long!
