Feira do Rio Antigo

Feira do Rio Antigo

Description

One of the best things to do every first Saturday of the month in Rio de Janeiro is the antiques fair on Rua do Lavradio, Lapa. Officially called Feira do Rio Antigo, or "Old Rio Fair", the open-air market receives from 15,000 to 20,000 visitors every month. At this market you'll be able to see lots of real antique and vintages stores with beautiful things, and stands that sell all kinds of jewellery, vintage fashion and handcrafted stuffs! During the event artists from different parts of Brazil are playing great music, especially choro and samba.  Usually there are also some drama and dance acts. The entertainment stages are set up at different points of the street. When you get hungry and thirsty after shopping you can go to one of those charming restaurants and bars in the street to grab a cold beer and eat the traditional 'feijoda' dish.
