List of Local Markets & Market Days In Portugal
Here in Portugal as is the case in most local towns and villages through out the countries of the world most have their own markets and market days i have compled a list as below.
Some of the towns and villages in Portugal will have a weekly market day where by most of the vendors are from the local and surrounding areas and some will also have a monthly market where some vendors will travel from far and wide to sell their goods at your local market. See full list below
Again just like in the UK you will see the same vendors at the weekly markets over and over again. This is a good thing as you can build up a relationship with the seller and possibly start getting a bargain as you become more and more of a regular to the local markets here in Portugal. Market places are a great place to learn your Portuguese as a lot of the vendors especially in the rural towns and vilages dont speak a great deal of English. Dont let this put you off as they are all very willing to help even if you dont speak any Portuguese yet. See below for full list of towns and the days they have their local markets
The best fresh fruit and vergetables in Portugal.
At these local town & village markets you will see the best in fresh fruit and veg, in the rural towns and vilages a lot of the market seller are just homestead or small holding owners who add to their income by selling the friut and veg that they have grown themselves on thier land. Buying from these will give you peace of mind that the produce is as fresh as it comes because it has quite possibly just been harvested from the garden this morning.
Meats and Poultry.
fresh cuts of meat and poultry even live animals to either keep for the egg laying potential or to slaghter yourself when you get home will also be available in most of the village and town markets.
