Shopping in Lisbon
Like food and nightlife, the shopping scene in Lisbon is wide and varied, where everyone can find a place to buy items that would cater to their personal style. From flea markets that sell bohemian trinkets of all sizes, to the luxury brands found at the Chiado district, and vintage shops where you could see amazing Portuguese items, you’ll never run out of places to shop around Lisbon.
The main shopping areas in Lisbon include Chiado, Principe Real, Avenida Da Liberdade, Baixa, and Barrio Alto. Several shopping malls are scattered around town, some as big as Colombo and others as small as Armazéns do Chiado. Lisbon also has the Feira da Ladra near National Pantheon, and a market for fresh produce at Mercado da Ribeira.
If you’re always looking for the trendiest styles, checkout Lisbon’s Modalisbo, the city’s independent fashion week that takes place twice a year and showcases some of the best works from Lisbon-based designers.
Lisbon has a lot of items to be proud of. Since one of Portugal’s main industries is footwear, you can check out many high-quality footwear that can beat Italy’s footwear standards. Other souvenir-worthy items that have a distinct Lisbon vibe include luxurious soaps, cork-made products, wool accessories, and gourmet delicacies (such as canned sardines, oils, cheeses, custard tarts, chocolates, and more).
