I love markets. I love bargaining and I love the quality of the products I can buy there. Today was a market day. We decided to buy good eggs, but ended up buying half of the market… At least, that how it felt on the way home 🙂
The Bolhão market in Porto was built in the 19th century and it is one of the oldest markets in Portugal. Even though it’s popular in Portugal and it’s suggested to visit by all possible guide books and there are lots of tourists all the time, the prices are way lower than in supermarkets.
The eggs (already tried them) are real eggs, with YELLOW yolk, really yellow yolk. The market is unbelievable, with lots of fresh fruits and veggies.
If you are a meat lover, you will also have some fun there as there are lots of typical Portuguese sausages and meats being sold there.
If you are with a girl, you should look at the flowers. I am sure she will be happy to get a bunch of fresh flowers. Girls, if you like to treat yourself with flowers, you can save some money and get any flower you want!
If you are tired, you can have a rest on the stairs, like this tiny dude did!
The market day was great and the last touch was this bunch of berries and flowers that are comfortably living on my kitchen! The nutritious day is guaranteed!!! Well, with a little touch of Portuguese white wine 🙂
