    Feirinha: Popular Market

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Recife - Brazil

    A popular market of local crafts takes place each Saturday and Sunday from 4 PM to 19PM in Boa Viagem square.

    It's a good solution for those staying in the beach and not wanting to go to town to buy souvenirs, but I didn't check the prices.

    An old detention house, closed in 1973, was transformed under Brennand's supervision, in a shopping mall. The architecture was preserved, and the cells were occupied by dozens or small shops, selling local crafts.

    Together with "Feirinha", in Boa Viagem Beach, this is one of the best places to buy handicrafts, with the shops side-by-side in an open and fair competition

    The Beach: The Anti-Mall

    A shopping mall is a concentrated series of shops, waiting for the costumers to pass by. "Boa Viagem" beach is just the opposite : a series of moving shops, passing by the costumers.

    One day, I decided to note everything they were selling. I quickly gave up, and decided to note what they were NOT selling in the beach. There's the exhaustive list:
    Real Estate
    Cars
    Computers
    and...
    I really can't remember anything else not sold in the beach!
