    Enjoy the crafts and daily shows of Capoeira and MPB. Just a fling down the elevator and you'll be there. It used to be the farmer's market before the big fire, now the remnants of the old market can be seen at the basement.

    All over: Great artwork and sculptures

    by oceania26 Written Jan 1, 2007

    What to buy: There are some amazing artwork and sculptures around town. There's soooo many shops and street vendors so you will need at least half a day if not a day to walk around check it out.

    What to pay: It varies on the size and artist but you can buy small paintings for low as $R5

    Mercado Modelo: 100% Brazilian Crafts

    by IIGUANA Written Nov 27, 2003

    Actually it's not a shop. It's a huge craftmarket with brazilian crafts. It was built as an old jail for slaves, but it's now the biggest craftmarket in Salvador. If you want to buy things for yourself or some gifts, this is the place!

    What to buy: Crafts. They've got everything.
    Look out for the instrument they use for Capoeira, and the bahiana dolls. If your turn them upside down, their dress changes.
