Mercado da Ribeira: fresh veggies from the producer

Forget the supermarkets. If you want an apple that tastes like an apple or a carrot or a lettuce that tastes really good you have to walk to Mercado da Ribeira, next to Cais do Sodré.

There you will find producers selling their products and you can choose what you link and buy the quantity you want. Simple as that.

It’s like a walk around the farm without leaving the city. I enjoy going there Saturday morning and buy fresh vegetables or a bouquet of flowers. But you can also find fresh fish, codfish, meat, eggs or bread in na old market that goes back to 1892.

When

From Monday to Saturday, 06h00 to 14h00
