feira da ladra- market of the thief

Flea Market

This market is an 800 year-old Lisbon tradition which takes place every Tuesday and Saturday. Sprawling across Campo de Santa Clara, behind the São Vicente da Fora Church, you will find a sea of blankets with locals selling everything; antiquities, unwanted household items, handicrafts, architectural remnants, and between the tables of new clothes and tools are a few people selling odd collections of items that look suspiciously like they have been stolen.

Location

Campo de Santa Clara

Alfama, Lisboa

mercado da ribeira- ribeira market

Farmers Market

Downtown Lisbon’s largest farmers market is set under a massive pavilion where you can watch fresh seafood from the Azores Islands to Norway being snatched up by locals and restauranteurs haggling for the best price. Although the financial crisis and wholesale discount chain stores have reduced this once thriving market to a handful of diehard vendors, this is still a great place to pick up picnic items for those who are romantic, or budget minded travelers. Chatting with the local merchants here is far more rewarding experience than a chain grocery store.  With a bag off fresh fruit, veggies, cheese, olives, bread and some cured meats you are ready to find a shady spot atop Castle S. Jorge for a lunchtime feast with views. The market is closed on Sundays when the upper mezzanine becomes a trading post for local philatelists and numismatists, (stamp and coin collectors).

Location

Rua da Ribeira Nova, 18

Biaxa, Lisboa

Open Mon. to Fri. 6.00 to 14.00, then 15.00 -19.00 and on Sat: 6.00 to 14.00, (Closed on Sundays)


ribeira timeout magazine food pavilion

Restaurants and Cafes

The markets management was taken over by TimeOut Lisboa Magazine, with a bold a project that was finally realized in May 2014.


The Mercado da Ribeira now hosts a lively food pavilion with over 30 top chefs, Lisbon eateries and famous shops, some of which have supplied Lisboetas with savory foodstuffs for over a century. Inside is a beautifully designed 500 seat dining area that gets bustling around 9:00pm, but not to worry because there are another 200 seats outside on the terrace where seafood and light snacks alike can be enjoyed beside the park in Dom Luis Square.


There are no fast food stands, no trans-Euro franchises, and none of those awful umbrellas and plastic chairs sporting logos for sodas and beers. This shows how Lisbon takes its food seriously and the plans for more are in the works. There will also be a space dedicated to cultural activities on the first floor that will open in September 2014. There will be an auditorium capable of seating 300 people as well as a bar and restaurant. TimeOut is already organizing small cultural events with artists and musicians to liven up the summer and fall nights in 2014.


Come check out everything from traditional Portuguese sandwiches like the Prego, or Bifana, or fresh Atlantic seafood and fish dishes, an excellent selection of local wines, cheeses and even some ethnic eateries from former Portuguese colonies where the kitchens or Portugal and other countries have combined over time to create their own unique cuisine. There are renowned chefs sporting stars, and start ups who won a competition hosted by TimeOut to receive a coveted place in the market food pavilion.

Location

Rua da Ribeira Nova, 18

Open from 10.00 to midnight on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays it is open until 2.00 in the morning. Located on the ground floor on the west side of the pavilion.
