immersion into the rhythm and culture of Rio This moving farmer’s market called “Feira” (Fair) is
held most weekdays at various locations around Rio Friendly vendors will chase you down yelling “tente isso!” (try this!), with a fruit and a big knife in hand 😀 Everything is worth trying; it’s as fresh as you can get Try exotic fruits like fruta de conde,
atemoya, or jabuticaba, açai, and more Feira starts early in the morning, and runs until early afternoon. Everybody here is friendly and respectful Feel free to sample, but don’t take advantage
Sampling is also a way to find the best of the best The best option is Fridays in Ipanema. All you need to do is ask “feira de Ipanema no praça da Senhora da Paz” if you have enjoyed this video, please share
