Create an itinerary including Mercado do Bolhao
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.

  • Large selection of vendors from everything from fresh fruits, flowers, vegetables, meats and seafood to baked goods, crockery and condiments. A nice place to browse and get some produce. The mushroom stand in particular was a highlight and had a great selection!
  • Newly re-opened after a full refurbishment. Great place for local produce plus can taste local wines (at a reasonable price). Friendly vendors. Many different snacks available although limited seating available. certainly worth visiting.
