The market is small but it is nice and clean with lots of fresh local fruits and fish... the people are very accommodating and will advice well on cooking and preparation as per local traditions. Price wise is so cheap. Don’t miss it.

Wonderful Olhao
Mar 2020
Have been visiting Olhao for the past 9 years and it never disappoints. Lovely working town and people. The markets are wonderful to wander around. Lots of changes now but hopefully they won’t spoil this wonderful place.

Fresh sea food, fruits and vegetables
Mar 2019
It was late in the morning when we visited the market. Some of the fish stalls are already closed but there are still some fresh sea food left for sale. You can find different varieties of fish. The whole market is clean and orderly while the vendors are friendly.

The other building of the market houses fruits, vegetables and other dry goods. They are also fresh. We bought some fruits for the trip and they are good!

There are also some food stalls and cafe around the market with seats outside. On a warm day, it would be nice to stay there overlooking the marina. A visit to this market is definitely worth it!

Great Produce
Feb 2020 • Couples
This mercado consists with two buildings one with fish and the other with fruits and vegetables. This market is open all week expect Sundays. On the Saturday the open air market sets up as well including additional fresh products and opens from 7am. This Saturday market is the greatest and best with shops offering all types of things. The lovely Marina including the wide green space is a bonus.

Awesome Market
Jan 2020 • Couples
Two buildings one with seafood and fruit and vegetables in the other. The fruits and vegetables were amazingly fresh even though it was January. The folks in the fish market were great very willing to clean, descale and fillet your purchase. We knew virtually no Portuguese but the venders still made it easy to make purchases.

I wonder where locals buy food - all the stuff here is expensive! get away from the market and see the stunning morals of the old town's folk and the great stork nests on chimneys
I delightful town which in winter has a slow longing pace - loved it

Defo worth going to top up on your groceries and fresh fish
Oct 2019
A decent sized bustling market that is open all week except Sundays. Saturdays are the best and busiest time. Get there earliesh (8-9am) to get the best fish and they will gut it for you. Take it home and chuck it on the BBQ with a bit of sea salt from the salt pans that dot the area. Voila.!

A village comes to life
Oct 2019 • Couples
We came to Olhao last Monday and it has been unbelievably quiet compared to June when we usually holiday. Come Saturday and the place transforms into an exceptionally busy fishing village. Both indoor markets were packed with sellers and buyers - one naturally full of fish and the other packed with fruit and veg. Cars and coaches appear from nowhere and all of a sudden the waterfront cafes / bars are full.
Be aware that there are two prices - one for tourists and a cheaper one for locals!

Good shopping experience

We combined this visit to see and utilize the market. Everyone and everything great. Bought good fresh fish and produce to use at our self catering place in the mountains. Better than the supermarket.
