MASP antique fair is an icon in the Paulista region every Sunday. If you are visiting MASP leave no more than 1 hour to pay a visit to the antique fair. But items are quite pricy for things that sometimes are just old not true antiques.

Our family was visiting MASP and stumbled upon this Sunday market. It had some lovely stuff, but everything seemed very pricey and I didn't see much leeway to bargain. My husband is always on the hunt for old coins that he can turn into cufflinks, but what was available was way over-priced. It was nice for a wander through, but... More

This is a tourist trap, don't be fooled. You can find the similar items for a fraction of the price in one of the many 'China town' markets along Paulista (1 located next to the 24hr pharmacy outside the MASP station). It's a small market situated under the MASP building and they capitalize on the location. You'll see pretty much... More

This is a Sunday market that we saw at about 11am, which had about 40 stalls. They mostly sell antiques or junk items from around the world (not many appear to be Brazilian). These may include old sunglasses, old weapons, old coins, and old (or new) pens. There is quite a lot of Oriental and Indian artwork too. Much of... More

My friend and I stopped by this antiques market on our way to visit the MASP museum. It's an outdoor market with lots of individual booths selling all kinds of collectibles. It was fun to wander up and down the aisles and look at old Brazilian antiques. We didn't buy anything, but it was fun to look around. I noticed... More

It is an interesting thing to see and given its location on Paulista Avenue and under the MASP it is worth seeing but I wouldn't go out of my way. While it is fun to browse, given my lack of Portugese language skills and lack of knowledge about antiques in general, much less Brazilian antiques I can't imagine buying anything... More

If you love antiques and history, you will enjoy this market! There are 100+ stands and it is well organised. It is not a place where you will find bargains, but if you know your history and you have knowledge regarding antiques, you will pay for the worth of the antique! And afterwards you can visit MASP!

A lot of interesting old stuff. I myself do not know how to buy antiques but a savvy might find valuable stuff there. Was actually quite nice place.

This is definitely worth a visit on Sunday. It is not open on Saturday. It's right next to the MASP art museum. There are a lot of antiques and other miscellaneous crafts, handmade items and collectibles. Make sure you take an I-translate program on your smart phone, or have the words you want to ask memorized in Portuguese. I was... More

Staying in Bela Vista

Neighbourhood Profile
Bela Vista
Known for its Italian cantinas, Bela Vista is the place to go for great pasta. Also called “Bixiga”, the area is an important cultural part of the city, with the bohemian and the religious costumes of its inhabitants on full display. In August, the large Nossa Senhora Achiropita party fills the streets with a variety of Italian food and music. You can experience the liveliness of the neighbourhood walking through the antiquities fair at Dom Orione Square or visiting the “Brazilian Caminito”, a version of the Argentinian street complete with colorful buildings. Bela Vista is also home to the traditional samba school “Vai-Vai”. Buy a ticket to a rehearsal and get a taste of what Carnival is like.
