Algarve Markets

There are many Algarve markets to visit. The most common Algarve market is the daily fresh fruit and fish markets, most towns and villages in the Algarve have one, and they are generally located in the centre. Get there early in the morning to find he best fish!

Then we have the gipsy markets, auctions and the flea markets. The monthly gipsy markets also have food and beverages, mainly coffee, beer and fried chicken! Many locals of the area dress up for this monthly event!
