Markets in Portugal

Heading to the weekly market in Portugal is something that is part of my culture. I live pretty close to the border between Spain and Portugal so it’s something we usually do to buy edibles, clothes or home goodies.

Personally my favorite stalls are the ones with antiquities, pottery and above all, the ones with all types of baskets.

You can bargain!

  • Feria Quincenal en Ponte da Lima (1st and 3rd Monday of the month): the oldest market in Portugal with more than 300 stalls.
  • Feria de Braga (Tuesdays)
  • Feria de Valença (Wednesdays)
  • Feria de Barcelos (Thursdays)
  • Feria de Vila Nova de Cerveira (Saturdays)
  • Feria de Antiguedades e Velharias en Ponte da Lima (Sundays)

Where to buy pottery in Portugal

My recommendations to buy pottery:

  • Artesanal a Mó, Sagres: this shop is famous for its façade with colorful plates.
  • Porches: the most famous pottery in Portugal
  • Vista Alegre, Aveiro
  • Feria da Praia (in October), in Vila Real de Santo António
  • Bordallo Pinheiro, Caldas da Rainha: the famous artistic pottery byl Bordallo Pinheiro
  • Outlet in Vila Nova de Cerveira: the one you see often on my  instagram. The location is on the map below.
