Visit a traditional Portuguese market

Updated: May 16, 2020

Portugal is one of the few remaining European countries where locals actually buy what they need in local markets. You will find everything of what you could possibly need, e.g. chickens, turkeys, fruit trees, hats, leader, shoes, fresh vegetables, fruits, cheese and sausages. Many markets have stalls and vans selling street food. Portuguese donuts (farturas) are very popular and there's nothing quite like the smell of chicken cooking over charcoal to get your taste going! If you’re visiting the Algarve, then a trip to one of the many Algarve markets is an absolute must. This is a list of the closest markets nearby.
