The Biological Market at the Principe Real

Organic products have been gaining popularity for a while now, and as more and more people begin to adopt healthy lifestyles, they choose naturally grown fruits and vegetables which leave little negative trace on the environment. Every Saturday, farmers from across Portugal gather in Principe Real to offer their horticultural produce and home-made olive oils, soaps and cereal. The prices are not on the low side, but bargaining is always possible and appropriate. It is also worth strolling around the beautiful Principe Park and surrounding area, with its busy open air cafes and shops.
