An institution in Lisbon’s pop culture, this iconic market, one of the capital’s largest open food markets – which used to sell everything from fresh seafood to fabulous fruit – one day just didn’t open its doors again, leaving a special place in the hearts of all the now-grown-up kids who used to go grocery shopping there with their parents. Fortunately, Time Out Lisboa has re-opened its doors to this brand's new concept.
TimeOut Market was a pilot project from the media group TimeOut, which rapidly became a huge success among locals and tourists who visit the city.
The place opened in 2014, features more than two dozen restaurants, plus a variety of kiosks, pop up stores, and a Cooking Academy.
The market features some of Lisbon’s finest restaurants, from Chefs Alexandre Silva, Vítor Claro, Miguel Castro Silva, Henrique Sá Pessoa or Marlene Vieira to well-known stores like Conserveira de Lisboa and Garrafeira Nacional as well as Arcádia (one of the oldest chocolatiers in Portugal, founded in the 1930s in the city of Porto, which still makes some of the best chocolates in the country), Santini (probably the best ice-cream in the world!), Monte Mar (one of the most well-known seafood restaurants in Lisbon, that so far had only one location, in Cascais by Guincho beach, so it’s incredibly exciting that we’ll be able to taste some of the best seafood in the country in another location) and the new ones that are making an impression around Lisbon such as Sea Me, Honorato (one of the first burger restaurants to take advantage of the burger craze in Lisbon, with some of the coolest burgers in town), Prego da Peixaria (some absolutely delicious steak sandwiches, as well as the more modern salmon or tuna sandwiches – delicious) or Confraria (already a classic in Cascais, this sushi place makes unbelievably good lime nigiri, among some of the best sushi in Lisbon).
Perfect to grab a quick bite or delve into the gourmet experiences on offer in the 30 establishments which have 500 covered seats and 250 terrace seats in a near-perfect location by the river. Do not miss it!
TimeOut Market is not only a boiling spot in Lisbon in terms of food. The market is also home for the first cooking academy from TimeOut, hosting several workshops where the common factor, is of course: love for food.
The academy aims to be the place to learn, perfect and sharing the love for food. The agenda is wide and offers options for every type of cook: from learning how to fry an egg, to learn how to do Lisbon’s infamous custard tart, workshops for kids, or others for more exquisite cooks.
