I’ll be honest: Anjos is a neighborhood that was never on my list of favorites in the city. But it sure is an area that has been booming with creativity lately, and one that usually never gets a lot of love.
I’d first heard of Taberna das Almas as a cultural location in this neighborhood through social media. Then, a couple of friends told me about this market that would pop up in this cultural association monthly. And suddenly, when I first got there, poof! A wall of people moving in a tiny area and a lot of hidden gems in each selling display.
What I find charming about this market is that you can pretty much please a lot of people: yes, you do get some “run of the mill” clothes, but also some vintage items, quirky jewelry, illustration, stationery, crafts…the list is ever changing, as the selling stands are usually not the same in each edition of the market. Plus, there is a bar in the back if you want to sit down and get something to drink.
The admission is free, the dates on which the market will take place are posted on social media regularly – and if I’ve bought some treasures there, I’m pretty sure you will to!
