Ribeira Market in Lisbon

Considered the oldest, the Mercado da Ribeira in Lisbon, this vast “market” covered in ultra-trendy stalls consists of about thirty small kiosks. These are lined up side by side, on all 4 sides of the market. You will see the best dishes of Lisbon being prepared right before your eyes, in front of the open kitchens. Here, you can exclusively buy food and drink, with the option to taste local specialties crafted and reimagined by Portuguese chefs right before your amazed eyes. Since 2014, it has been the king of markets in the capital. The idea was to bring together, under one roof, a broad spectrum of the local food culture. Discover the 24 restaurants, some of which are run by very famous Portuguese chefs, the 8 bars, a dozen shops, and a high-end concert hall called Rive Rouge.

They offer everything that’s the best in Lisbon (the best steak, the best hamburger, the best sushi, and the best live shows, among others); on the other hand, it hosts some of the city’s most well-known (and oldest) vendors of meat, fish, fruits, and flowers. Once you’ve made your choice, you can then dine or stroll, in the midst of this famous market, at high or low tables. Additional islands are also set up in the center, dedicated to creative bars, but also to team building activities around cooking. Take the opportunity to discover culinary team building workshops at the Mercado da Ribeira in Lisbon with your colleagues!

Different culinary team building workshops will be offered to you: from typical Portuguese dishes and pastries to holiday dinners, there’s something for everyone!
