About this spot
The Mercado da Ribeira has been around since the 12th century—though in different locations. By the 17th century it was known across Europe. The current structure opened in 1882 and housed the city’s main wholesale market. The market moved in 2000 and the building fell into disrepair. However, in 2014, Time Out [a global media and hospitality business] took over the space and now it is the biggest food market in Lisbon. The market is busy from opening to late evening.

The gourmet food hall takes the concept of “food court” to a new level. The food served here has been curated by an independent panel of experts. All food served has received either 4 or 5 stars from Time Out’s food writers and critics.
