20 Sep The 5 best markets in Lisbon
Whether you are a foodie always looking for the freshest products, or you just have a passion for antique furniture or vintage clothes, the markets in Lisbon have options for everyone.
Here you have five options for your days in the city:
1. Feira da Ladra
One of the most iconic flea markets in Lisbon, Feira da Ladra is located in Campo de Santa Clara square (next to the National Pantheon) since the late 1800s. Every Saturday and Tuesday morning locals and visitors will look for antiques and arts, handmade jewelry, vintage clothes or vinyl – there’s always something for every budget.
Between São Torpes and Porto Covo, you will find this hidden beach surrounded by cliffs. Praia da Samoqueira is both breathtaking and captivating, with natural pools, caves and islets. It’s an unwatched beach that doesn’t have any amenities besides its idyllic and captivating setting, with soft sand and perfectly clean water.
2. Lx Factory Sunday Market
The place itself is a large part of the attraction – lx factory is a former fabric company converted into funky bars, trendy shops, and places to eat, right underneath Lisbon’s landmark 25th of April Bridge. Every Sunday there is an open-air market, selling original pieces, trendy hand-made items, vintage clothes, shoes or plants. It’s a great spot to have brunch and stroll along the market.
3. Santos Collective
If you are looking for local produce, biological food, fresh flowers, and plants or products by local artisans, this is the place for you. Santos Collective is located in Jardim Nuno Alvares, in Santos, and it’s the perfect place for a picnic with all the market goodies.
4. Biological Market Príncipe Real
Lisbon’s only organic farmers market is held every Saturday morning around the Príncipe Real garden, which makes it a great place to pass by while visiting that enchanting place of the city. The market vendors sell vegetables, fruits, olive oil, fresh herbs, or natural cosmetics.
5. Crafts & Design Market
The Jardim da Estrela is home to a Crafts&Design fair on the first weekend of every month (except for January and August). This is a creative market that works as a platform for the dissemination of creators in the areas of design and contemporary crafts – the artists take over the garden and sell their artifacts, and local families enjoy the outdoors. In summer this is the perfect place to have a picnic on the grass.
