Feira do Bexiga A joyful jumble

Feira do Bexiga is one of São Paulo’s classic fleamarkets. Every Sunday, the Praça Dom Orione fills with stalls hawking antiques, LPs, vintage clothing, Italian food and all sorts of fascinating junk that’s just waiting for the right buyer.

As the cradle of Paulistano samba, the Bexiga neighborhood also comes with a soundtrack: a “chorinho” group (usually composed of a flute, guitar and cavaquinho trio that plays popular music) or two always accompanies the bargaining.

And the square is surrounded by small Italian “cantinas”, which offer a fine view of the action on market days and a bit of coffee-fuelled respite at any other time of the week.
