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.

Jul 6 @ 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.

Jul 7 @ 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
Jul 7 @ 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.

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
Jul 20 @ 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.

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.

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?

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.
