Feira do Rio Antigo

If you find yourself in Rio on the first Saturday of the month and don't fancy the beach, there are few better ways to while away an afternoon than by strolling through the amassed piles of antiques and oddities that line Rua Lavradio at this monthly fair. Watch as all the shops fling open their shutters and display their often beautiful, often crumbly old furniture. You can pick up black and white photographs, antique bottles or arte naife, and try some wonderful food from any of the hundreds of stalls. Several good restaurants also line the far end of the road, offering the perfect pit stop if you're feeling a tad shopped out.

Mercado Popular da Uruguaiana

Seeing the prices in drugstores and many clothing outlets, visitors to Rio can often be left wondering just how locals afford to look so good. Very often, the answer lies here in Uruguaiana. Mercado Popular da Uruguaiana is a vast space of interlocking market squares – some covered, some open air, selling everything from football shirts and sportswear to jewelery, cosmetics, and necessities such as deodorant and batteries. All are available at much cheaper prices than in the shops, but be aware, this is not a market aimed at tourists– don't venture here after dark, and keep your wallet out of sight.
