Antiques in the Rain, MASP Antique Fair, São Paulo

Not only did I convince my dad to go to a food market, but also an ANTIQUE market 🙂

There are two parts to the Sunday fair:

1.) Local handicrafts and trinkets on the west side of Av. Paulista by the park

2.) Antiques under the Museu de Arte de São Paulo (MASP) across the street on the east side of Av. Paulista


The MASP building is quite unique in that it stands on 4 pillars about 26 feet above the ground.

Architect, Lina Bo Bardi, and engineer, José Carlos Figueiredo Ferraz , respected Joaquim Eugênio de Lima’s wishes and conceived this unique structure.

On Sunday’s the free space below becomes a large outdoor market with many stands selling various antiques and oddities.

It started to rain once we were under MASP, and I was able to capture a couple taking a selfie as the others fled the rain.


Since it was raining my dad offered to go get the car, parked across the street, but due to construction and traffic it took him over 20 minutes to get to us.

So…I took some more photos. I didn’t have a tripod but I was trying to play with my camera settings to get some shots of the moving traffic on Av. Paulista.


In São Paulo on a Sunday? Head to Feira de Antiguidades da Paulista under the Museu de Arte de São Paulo!
