Feira de Sao Cristovao reviews
Sounded like a really good place to go and get authentic souvenirs. Quite a long way out from central Rio. Quite frankly a lot of "tat" with a few reasonable shops/stalls - prices weer cheap though... more »
Fun to see the local produce, sweets, meat etc. Many small stalls with all sorts of items and a good many restaurants. We ate at one and enjoyed it. There was a band and people dancing. more »
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!
