Lisbon Events Calendar

Logistics for planning things to do for an excellent day (or week, or month) in and around Lisbon, in English. ATTENTION: Most of the top museums in Lisbon have closed due to the attempt to contain the Coronavirus. There will likely be last-minute cancellations on events until April 3 and possibly beyond, so for now, it’s best to call and check if the event you fancy is still going on just in case.

to Mar 31 | ONLINE MARKET | Ninho do Mocho | FREE | ONLINE

Here’s what Feira do Mocho says about itself:
“Mocho has an incredible vision, and it is with wide-open eyes that we want to boost local businesses and attract new audiences to urban spaces and gardens in the city with the creation of Feira do Mocho;
We want to demonstrate the importance and the need for good creativity, quality, and diversity, with each edition, with what is best done in national and international creative work; give opportunity to new international entrepreneurs who start their lives in the national territory; adopt sustainable practices in favor of the environment, society and well-being.”

And here’s what Mocho says about the apocalypse:
“At a time when we are not authorized to hold events, Mocho prepares an online storefront that will be launched very soon.
“O Ninho do Mocho” is preparing to welcome brands and help in their continued recognition of national creativity and online sales.
Stay tuned and if you want to join, you can send an email to [email protected], to receive data and conditions for joining.
Much strength to all! We are together!”

ON HOLD | Weekly | MARKET | Feira da Ladra | Alfama | FREE @ Feira da Ladra | Lisboa | Lisboa | Portugal

UPDATE: Due to COVID-19, the best market in Lisbon is on hold indefinitely.

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.

Apr 4 @ 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.

Weekly | MARKET | Craft & Design | Estrela | FREE
Apr 4 @ 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.

ON HOLD | Monthly | FLEA MARKET | Art & Flea at Anjos70 | Anjos | FREE @ Anjos70 | Lisboa | Lisboa | Portugal

UPDATE: Due to COVID-19, the market is on hold indefinitely.

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€, via https://anjos70.org.

CANCELLED | WEEKLY | FARMER'S MARKET | "LX Rural" at LX Factory | Alcantara | FREE @ LX Factory | Lisboa | Lisboa | Portugal

Eating at McDonald’s does not make you a bad person. Your ancestors have done it for generations, and you can always opt for just lettuce. But sometimes you just want something a little more natural and less controversial, if only to avoid those awkward dinner-party conversations.
In comes LX Rural, the new farmer’s market brought to you by LX Factory, the hippest (or freshest?) mini-Brooklyn this side of the Atlantic.
Here’s what they tell us:
“From the countryside to the city, from generation to generation, a rare market emerges. A market of freshness, quality and value.
Wake up early on Sunday and bring the family to the Rural Lx!
Come and meet the producers of traditional, sustainable and biological agriculture. Savor the products of the time. Come and taste the homemade bread, the preserves, the fresh vegetables, the sausages (thank Jesus!), the honey … and take the tradition and art to your table!
Indulge yourself in this market of colors and flavors of the field!”
The market is open to producers from all over Portugal, and is sure to make your Sunday hangover, if not better, healthier.

While Feira da Ladra (“Thieves market”) continues to be Lisbon’s number one second-hand market, that doesn’t mean it’s the ONLY market in town worth its weight in used stuff. 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€.

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.

ON HOLD | Weekly | MARKET | Feira da Ladra | Alfama | FREE
Apr 28 @ 08:00 – 18:00
ON HOLD | Weekly | MARKET | Feira da Ladra | Alfama | FREE @ Feira da Ladra | Lisboa | Lisboa | Portugal

UPDATE: Due to COVID-19, the best market in Lisbon is on hold indefinitely.

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.
