Aljezur Market

Step into the picture, bag some bargains and smell the chicken!

Have you ever longed to leave the ‘every day’ and travel back into another more traditional, genuine world? – well you can do just that on the Algarve by simply visiting the monthly gyspy markets. 

While the challenge of bargaining and bartering appeals to many, the chicken BBQ experience appeals to most.

Picture the scene, BBQ smoke drifting on the breeze across trestle tables & benches set beneath canvas awnings. Cheery serving staff moving between tables – flashing white table cloths topped with glasses, olives and bread. Huge jugs of deep red wine, cool-refreshing beers, crystal clear water – something for everyone. 

And the food – fresh frango cooked to perfection. Piri Piri as hot as you have ever tasted. Delicious chips & a simple salad with oven-fresh bread.

As you eat the food & drink the wine beneath the awnings, listening to the breeze in the trees and the locals haggling over bargains you will know you have truly arrived in the ‘real Portugal’ that you only ever previously dreamed of visiting.
