Mercado da Ribeira
An institution in Lisbon’s pop culture, this iconic market, one of the capital’s largest open food markets – which used to sell everything from fresh seafood to fabulous fruit – one day just didn’t open its doors again, leaving a special place in the hearts of all the now-grown-up kids who used to go grocery shopping there with their parents.
Fortunately, Time Out Lisboa has just re-opened its doors to a brand new concept!
A wide variety of amazing foods
The market will feature some of Lisbon’s finest restaurants, from Chefs Alexandre Silva, Vítor Claro, Miguel Castro Silva, Henrique Sá Pessoa or Marlene Vieira to well-known stores like Conserveira Nacional and Garrafeira Nacional as well as Arcádia (one of the oldest chocolatiers in Portugal, founded in the 1930s in the city of Porto, which still makes some of the best chocolates in the country), Santini (probably the best ice-cream in the world! Our favourite flavour is Strawberry, you really can’t beat the classics), Monte Mar (one of the most well-known seafood restaurants in Lisbon, that so far had only one location, in Cascais by Guincho beach, so it’s incredibly exciting that we’ll be able to taste some of the best seafood in the country in another location) and the new ones that are making an impression around Lisbon such as Sea Me, Honorato (one of the first burger restaurants to take advantage of the burger craze in Lisbon, with some of the coolest burgers in town), Prego da Peixaria (some absolutely delicious steak sandwiches, as well as the more modern salmon or tuna sandwiches – delicious) or Confraria (already a classic in Cascais, this sushi place makes unbelievably good lime nigiri, among some of the best sushi in Lisbon).
Perfect to grab a quick bite or delve into the gourmet experiences on offer in the 30 establishments which have 500 covered seats and 250 terrace seats in a near-perfect location by the river. Do not miss it!
