Authentic markets

Visiting a market in the Costa de Prata is quite an experience; the big difference with other markets is that you can really buy anything you can imagine. Clothing (from casual to men’s suits), shoes, tools, carpets, food,  horse saddles and live animals such as chickens, rabbits and puppies. The Mercado de Santana in Venda da Costa or the market Santana in Pataiasis is really an experience. Every Sunday morning of the year you can experience the Portuguese lifestyle at this authentic market. And you will not be alone! Because visitors come from everywhere. You will find on the market fresh fruit and vegetables, all kinds of cheese, but also baskets, furniture and hardware. And after a pleasant morning at the market you could finish with a delicious almoço, the traditional Portuguese lunch. Chicken piri-piri, batatas fritas and a delicious local wine. Naturally followed by a typical Portuguese coffee.
