Nov 23 @ 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.

Nov 23 @ 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.

MARKET | Ferinha: Hand to Hand Clothing | Graça | FREE @ Camones CineBar | Lisboa | Lisboa | Portugal

Judging by everywhere you look in town — not to mention abundant social media and real-life protest from the non-believers — Christmas Eve is right around the corner.

For this reason, Camones CineBar invites you for the second edition of its second-hand clothing market, aka Ferinha: Roupa de Mão em Mão, to find that last-minute, first-rate second-hand gifts. Or maybe even spice up your own wardrobe for 2020.

Here’s what they say:
“Just one month before Christmas Eve we are counting on you. What a privilege it is to bring the fair to you and make it fair for you … At a time when sharing, unity, solidarity, and awareness are red hot inside us, WILL YOU MISS OUT???”

Oh, and Merry Christmas, haters.

Bi-weekly | MARKET | Antiques and Crafts | Belém | FREE
Dec 1 @ 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
Dec 1 @ 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

Dec 7 @ 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.

Dec 7 @ 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

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

NOTE: one of the best ways to practice your Portuguese is by talking vendors down from 5€ to 1€.

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.

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

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 @ 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.
