Weekly | MARKET | Feira da Ladra | FREE
April 1 @ 09:00 - 18:00Free
Feira da Ladra (which translates as “flea market,” but “ladra” also means “thief” in English) is still the biggest new- and used-goods market in Lisbon and all of Portugal, happening every Tuesday and Saturday from around 9h to around 18h, although the quality and the prices aren’t what they used to be.
Nonetheless, you’ll find books, artisanal jewelry, purportedly 17th-century tiles (if they are, realize that they may have come off some historical building), second-hand and other clothes, sneakers, socks, underwear, original and other art, massive collections of African and Asian statuary that no one wants anymore, handicrafts, copper pots, vintage LPs, cassettes, CDs, gramophones, walkmans, batteries, deodorant, knives, forks, plates, soap, oils, phone chargers, furniture, and pretty much anything else you can possibly think of.
Haggling is becoming increasingly difficult, but if you don’t want to try, why are you going to a market, right? Be warned that some vendors will act insulted, and some may actually be insulted, so tread lightly.
