Mercado Municipal

This is Faro’s largest fresh produce market. Located in a gorgeous modern building, the market is open until late and is the perfect place to have direct contact with the local food culture. It is recommended to go in the early morning when the food stock is the highest.


In downtown Faro, you'll find plenty of small shops selling all sorts of products, from local handicraft to fashion and sports items, as well as some traditional liquor shops. Bigger commercial surfaces are also to be found — the city has some of the biggest shopping centres and fresh produce markets in the region.
