Local markets are a really big part of the Portuguese culture. You can’t visit the Algarve without spending a morning shopping for the local delicacies at these amazing markets.
Full of amazing sights and smells, they have a wide array of fresh fruits and vegetables, homemade jams and honeys, fresh fish as well as local handicraft – perfect for a souvenir to remember your holiday in Portugal!
The villa is well situated for a visit to Loulé’s market – it’s just a 5 minute drive away!
The market is open Monday to Saturday from 7am to 3pm. It’s held in the beautiful Arabian style market hall on Praça da República but there are also outdoor stalls available.
We recommend you arrive early so you have the pick of the freshest food. And in the summer it gets really hot, so going early is much more comfortable!
Here’s a few photos to give you a taste of what to expect:
Even in the springtime you can enjoy Loulé’s market. These photos were taken just last week – look at the fantastic spread of vegetables as well as homemade produce. And don’t get us started on how amazing all the fish looks – although the smell is not so enticing!
So why not book your holiday to the wonderful Algarve and make sure you include the local markets on your checklist of must-do’s!
Sending you sunshine! Casa Apollono Team 🙂
