ADNers, the day started with the blazing sun casting down at us as we go on for the search to find World Cup items. We didn’t need to go far to notice all the greens, blue, and yellows items in the flea market. In every city they have their designated spots that are less popular than others.
However, Saara Market has been known to locals as the common site to buy commercial Brazilian products. For every season, Saara market is your reliable place to supply you with all the items you need, may it be Easter, Carnival, World Cup, Christmas, Festa Junina, Kid’s Day, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, etc. During Carnival, you can see the market packed with costumes and decorations for parties. Now, Saara market is the place to go for all World Cup items from banners, flags, hats, stickers, confetti, blow horns, clothes and other party items.
And if you are still not convinced, know that Saara market has more than 600 shops. Considered a traditional spot, many would perceive this as the cultural experience you cannot miss. Need another reason to come? The prices are reasonable! Why? Because it is often overlooked by tourists, therefore, it continues to maintain that genuine Carioca spirit. It is truly a place to check out either for shopping, eating out, or meeting up for cocktails; add this to your list when in Rio.
The best way to get there is by subway. Get off at Uruguaiana station and walk around.
*As you could see in our video, Saara Market is very noisy with lots of speakers talking about the products and the shops over there, but it is definitely an awesome place to visit.
