The 5 best street markets in Lisbon
1) Feira da Ladra
Every Saturday and Tuesday morning locals and visitors flock to the Campo de Santa Clara square (next to the National Pantheon) to hunt for bargains and curiosities at Lisbon’s most entertaining flea market. There’s something for every budget.
2) Mercado BiolÓgico do 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 quarter of the city. The market vendors offer vegetables, fruits, olive oil, fresh herbs and other produce of superior quality and excellent value for money.

3) LX Factory Sunday Market
LX Factory is a successful urban renewal project that occupies a group of large abandoned 19th-century warehouses and factories in the area of Alcântara, keeping their raw and romantic feel intact. It is now the home of creative companies, artists, a fantastic restaurant and nightlife destination and the place to be for cultural activities.
4) Mercado de Produtores
Rita Santos Paul had a corporate job in a multinational company until she decided to open Comida Independente, a delicatessen specialised in high-quality Portuguese food products. Now she also organises a weekly Saturday market where small local producers sell their delicacies.
5) Avenida da Liberdade Market
The wide cobblestoned sidewalks of Avenida da Liberdade host a regular antiques market (every second weekend of the month plus the fourth Saturday and the preceding Thursday from May to October) that is much more upscale than that of Feira da Ladra. It’s the fanciest of street fairs in Lisbon, befitting of its posh location.
