The Basics

The Ribeira Market, housed in a beautiful 19th-century building, features traditional and gourmet food markets that are favorites among tourists and locals alike. A visit to the Ribeira Market is essential for those wanting to learn about and experience Portuguese food, including higher-end fare such as Henrique Sá Pessoa’s less expensive alternative to his Michelin-starred restaurant. You can tour the market independently, join a city tour that stops here (often for lunch), or see the market in the distance from a Tagus River cruise.
