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 do Jardim

The garden of Estrela is home to a Crafts&Design fair on the first weekend of every month (except for January and August), when vendors take over the garden paths, selling their artefacts, and local families bring their children to enjoy the outdoors. In summer people take advantage of the opportunity to picnic on the grass.

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.
