Bustling with butchers, craft shops, fruit stands, and more, Mercado do Bolhao serves as one of the city's most historically important and active commercial centers. Stop by the covered market, housed in a Neoclassical building from 1914, and wend your way through its two floors of stalls and vendors. You'll find a wide array of fish, agricultural products, and souvenirs for sale--all staples of the city and the region. Listen for the cries of the different vendors as you move through the center, as each one traditionally has his own distinct yell designed to bring in customers and ward off competitors. If you're in the mood for a bite, stop by one of the local cafes, or grab some traditional Portuguese fried tripe from a butcher shop. Using our custom trip planner, Porto attractions like Mercado do Bolhao can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

  • Be warned it is open at the mall a block or so away. But if you follow Google maps it takes you here and the market is under construction. Ask in the coffee shop for directions and enjoy a Nata and awesome coffee.
  • A lovely market, currently relocated to a temporary venue 1 block away.
