Ribeira Market (Dead Time Market)
Mercado da Ribeira, also known as Time Out Market, is one of the most vibrant and must-see places in Lisbon for food lovers. Located in the heart of the city, this market brings together some of the best chefs and restaurants in the region under one roof. Here you will find an incredible variety of local dishes, from traditional snacks to more sophisticated dishes. There are dishes for all palates.

We recommend trying the famous "Bifana", a typical Portuguese seasoned pork sandwich, or trying the delicious and traditional dish "Amêijoas à Bulhão Pato", a preparation of clams with garlic and cilantro. Don't forget to accompany these dishes with a glass of good Portuguese wine.

Mercado da Ribeira is much more than food; It is a complete gastronomic experience, where you can taste the best of Portuguese cuisine in a lively and welcoming atmosphere.
