Like every paradise for bargain hunters, the Saara Shopping District (Polo Saara) is a maze where you can find anything and everything. Be it T-shirts with witty print, colorful accessories, soccer jerseys or the iconic Brazilian flip flops: the Havaianas. The Saara Shopping District consists of a myriad of shops along the streets of Passos, Andradas, Buenos Aires, Alfandega as well as the Praça da República square.

The atmosphere within Saara is very authentic and couldn’t be further from the polished, air conditioned malls of the more upscale neighborhoods of Rio. People from all walks of life can be seen shopping and enjoying a day out with friends and family. Since the diverse market is popular with the locals and often overlooked by tourists, prices are reasonable and bargains can still be found everywhere. Just as varied as the shoppers are the sellers. Among the merchants are many immigrants from the Middle East, Turkey, Portugal, Greece, Spain and Argentina and especially during carnival when everyone is doing their last minute costume shopping, the bazaar shines in an explosion of colors with many multicultural elements. If you are lucky, you might even see an impromptu Samba presentation in the streets.
