"Flea Market" Feira da Ladra - Thieves Market Tip by Willettsworld

 
 

Lisbon's flea market is called locally the Feira da Ladra or "Thieves? Market" (in the original Portuguese, it is a woman thief!). A market of this type is thought to have been in place in Lisbon since the 12th Century and the name Feira da Ladra was first mentioned in the 17th Century. Located just to the north of the Panteão de Santa Engrácia (National Pantheon) and the Igreja de São Vicente de Fora in Alfama, the market takes place twice a week on Tuesdays and Saturdays. The stalls sell mostly bric-a-brac ranging from the usual touristy stuff, to clothes, toys and antiques. There are a couple of interesting stalls with prints of old maps, old postcards and photos. It?s worth having a rummage around and remember to haggle!
