Sep 21 @ 08:00 – 18:00
Weekly | MARKET | Feira da Ladra | Alfama | FREE @ Feira da Ladra | Lisboa | Lisboa | Portugal

The biggest and still the best outdoor market in Lisbon, every Tuesday morning and Saturday pretty much all day. “Ladra” means “thief” – while you can get some nice artisanal jewelry, 17th-century tiles, copper pots, and vintage LPs, this is also THE market to replace your missing phone charger or stolen backpack, pick up some off-the-truck books, and haggle over Soviet gas masks. Best place for gramophones in Europe bar none.

Morning time is when things are particularly sketchy, if you like that sort of thing. By 9, it’s mostly very nice shoppers, very civilized and such. Bonus: excellent street musicians forming impromptu gypsy orchestras with some real class and skill.

Take 712, 734 and 28 Electrico tram, or go by taxi, who all know where it is.

MARKET | Antiques | Estrela | FREE
Sep 21 @ 09:00 – 18:00
MARKET | Antiques | Estrela | FREE @ Jardim da Estrela

Antiques of all kinds, some crafts and artisanal goods, both edible and wearable, all in a get-away-from-it-all setting.

Everyone’s selling antiques in Lisbon these days, and the market held in Jardim da Estrela every third Saturday carries much the same as many others: old brass handles, pieces of chandeliers, those African statuettes that no one wants, and the occasional treasure. Like most antique markets, this one also has a decent selection of artisanal jewelry and some food. What makes it special is the setting: this quiet park in a residential area of the city is a far cry from the hustle and bustle of Feira da Ladra or anything in the center. There’s a cafe right next to it if you need some liquid courage.

Weekly | MARKET | Used and Antique Books | Chiado | FREE
Sep 21 @ 09:00 – 18:00
Weekly | MARKET | Used and Antique Books | Chiado | FREE @ Feira dos alfarrabistas do Chiado | Lisboa | Lisboa | Portugal

Feira dos Alfarrabistas (used book dealer fair) is a great place to break up the monotony of chain stores in Chiado and pick up something truly unique. Most books here are in Portuguese, but there are always gems in English and French and occasionally other languages. Several sellers also usually carry antique prints, old postcards, and maps. A very pleasant place to browse, and the prices are usually fairer than other markets.

to Sept 22 | OUTDOOR MARKET | Street Fest Alameda | Alameda | FREE
Sep 21 @ 12:00 – 22:00
to Sept 22 | OUTDOOR MARKET | Street Fest Alameda | Alameda | FREE @ Alameda - Fonte Luminosa | Lisboa | Lisboa | Portugal

Alameda, the beautiful semi-park overlooking downtown Lisbon, is often overlooked due to its location. Local non-profit Street Fest describes itself as based on the “idea of ​​boosting the capital’s squares and gardens, creating unique moments of good music and a very good atmosphere for a happier city!”
This weekend, they’re boosting the already unique area of Alameda with two days of good vibes.
Here’s how they describe it:
“Bring family and friends, dog and parakeet, a towel to spread on the lawn, and taste the different flavors in STREET FOOD roulette, to the sound of Ketzal, Azza, The Cool and Caffeine, and Lucky Club! Accompany this with a cold imperial and say goodbye to the summer in a perfect environment between food, music, and a small exhibition of craft projects of young entrepreneurs.”

Imperial = draft beer FYI.

Sep 21 @ 18:00 – 23:30
to Sept 29 | FESTIVAL | Popular INATEL na Rua 2019 | FREE @ VARIOUS LOCATIONS | Lisbon | Lisbon | Portugal

The INATEL Foundation describes the fourth edition of their POPular – INATEL na Rua Festival as “an initiative that aims to disseminate traditional cultural practices, in fulfillment of its mission and as a UNESCO consultant to safeguard the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Portugal.”
They’ve been partying and safeguard culture since May, and for the last two weekends in September they’re throwing two final three-day celebrations — one in Ajuda and the other in Jardim da Estrela.
Theater, dance, music, ethnography, sports, games — and, in the words of INATEL, “vehicles of associative work performed by thousands of citizens dedicated to the valorization and dissemination of traditional culture” — are just some of the cultural fun ahead.

Atlas has it on good authority that creative space across the river Arroz Estúdios, despite being only a one-year-old space, knows what they’re doing. The word is still out on whether anything half-naked will jump out of a cake, but we’ll let you know once we hear something.

Oct 5 @ 10:00 – 19:00
Weekly | MARKET | Craft & Design | Estrela | FREE @ Jardim da Estrela | Lisboa | Lisboa | Portugal

This is probably the most relaxed craft market in town, thanks to its position in the tranquil and beautifully cared-for Jardim da Estrela. It’s also surprisingly diverse and offers more than your average home-made soaps and ankle bracelets. We can’t guarantee she’ll be there every time, but we once saw a woman here selling one-of-a-kind, perfectly creepy oversized papier-mâché dolls, for example.

The first weekend of every month, except January.

Oct 5 @ 11:00 – 19:00
Monthly | FLEA MARKET | Art & Flea at Anjos70 | Anjos | FREE @ Anjos70 | Lisboa | Lisboa | Portugal

Come get your inner hipster on at Lisbon’s self-described “most alternative” market, the first weekend of every month, brought to you by Anjos70. Art, crafts, vintage clothes sold by modern people, funky teas and healthy substances, army fatigues, photography, printing workshops, a bar with non-hipster-priced booze, coffee and snacks, and much more. It sure beats the generic tile shops that Rua Augusta and Graça are littered with.
The market has been growing for six years now; it has over 100 stalls, plus a live DJ. The goods and the people are mostly authentically Portuguese, but with English being spoken evenly.
Ask any local and they will say they’ve been pleasantly surprised.

The market takes place on the first weekend of every month except August and January, when they have special programming. The entry is free, and if you’d like to set up a table, you can do so starting at around 10€: https://anjos70.org

Bi-weekly | MARKET | Antiques and Crafts | Belém | FREE
Oct 6 @ 09:00 – 17:30
Bi-weekly | MARKET | Antiques and Crafts | Belém | FREE @ Jardim Vasco da Gama in Belem | Lisboa | Lisboa | Portugal

This Belem market takes place on the first and third Sunday every month, and is a better-organized and smaller version of the chaotic Feira da Ladra. It’s definitely more middle class, is what we’re saying. There’s an abundance of antiques, used books, watches, and cameras, ceramics old and new, and even furniture, and smart hagglers will find that there are bargains to be had. The market is also particularly good for more creative souvenir shopping these days and, at last count, there were at least two very skilled shoemakers willing to part with their quality-leather creations for not very many euros at all. And on the first Sunday of every month, you can also visit the nearby CCB Market, which is, how shall we put it… more upper-middle-class?

Monthly | MARKET | CCB Market | Belém | FREE
Oct 6 @ 10:00 – 18:00
Monthly | MARKET | CCB Market | Belém | FREE @ Centro Cultural de Belém | Lisboa | Lisboa | Portugal

A mix between old and new, as the organizers like to describe it, the monthly market at CCB is a combination of traditional and urban art, vintage and freshly-sewn clothes, and an impressive array of delicacies like jams and honeys, as well as soaps and even plants. There’s also a seasonal fruits and vegetables stand that’s very reasonably priced for such a hip affair.

Dates for 2019: 6 January | 3 February | 3 March | 7 April | 5 May | 2 June | 7 July
4 August | 1 September | 6 October | 3 November | 1 December

You can find some nice hidden gems at Lisbon’s second-best second-hand market, at Feira Intendente, every other Sunday all year round.

Morning time is when things are particularly sketchy, if you like that sort of thing. By 9, it’s mostly very nice shoppers, very civilized and such. Bonus: excellent street musicians forming impromptu gypsy orchestras with some real class and skill.

Take 712, 734 and 28 Electrico tram, or go by taxi, who all know where it is.

Weekly | MARKET | Used and Antique Books | Chiado | FREE @ Feira dos alfarrabistas do Chiado | Lisboa | Lisboa | Portugal

Feira dos Alfarrabistas (used book dealer fair) is a great place to break up the monotony of chain stores in Chiado and pick up something truly unique. Most books here are in Portuguese, but there are always gems in English and French and occasionally other languages. Several sellers also usually carry antique prints, old postcards, and maps. A very pleasant place to browse, and the prices are usually fairer than other markets.
