Lisbon markets that will surprise you

Lisbon locals love markets. In fact, like most all the Portuguese people. And this happens for many reasons, mostly related to foods. Better flavor, better visual appearance, better texture, origin from local producers (often also biological) and a good variety of choice are just a few factors that bring thousands of people to the Lisbon markets nowadays.

But it is not only for the products sold that these places are very successful: the people of Lisbon also like the typical environments that exist here: a typical shout here and there, a louder voice, a child’s cry or scream, a laugh... and hustle all the time!  Colors, smells, tastes, sounds, voices: in the markets of Lisbon, there is everything. Without missing, of course, the animation, the tenacity, the good mood, the simplicity and the humbleness of those who are inside the counter, the kiosk or the tent.

If you are in the capital and you have never visited a Lisbon market, you will love to do it. Especially if you visit one of the following options:
