Loule, Algarve – Portugal

The Loule Farmers Market is held every Saturday morning. The market building is open all week long, but each Saturday local farmers head to town and offer their wares in the streets and alleys that surround the Mercado (market) building.

Flowers, bedding plants, fruits, vegetables, herbs, homemade cakes, eggs, cheeses, chourico (chorizo is the Spanish equivalent), presunto (dry cured ham), bacalhau (dried and salted cod) are all on offer by friendly locals.

Inside the market building are a lot of fish vendors and it is very smelly! They are there every day except Sunday.

We indulged in the berries – strawberries, blueberries and raspberries. I bought some goats cheese to go with the fig and almond roll – yummo! The 2kg of strawberries we bought cost EU3.50 or NZD5.60 The raspberries cost us EU1.00 or NZD1.60 and the blueberries EU2.00 or NZD3.20. I think we’ll be back there next Saturday : )

The picture of Steve with a beer was taken at lunch today – he is much happier with this size beer!











This blog was originally set up to share our 9 month adventure around Europe and the USA with friends and family in 2014. On returning to NZ in January 2015 I decided to carry it on so I could continue to share any future travel adventures - it has become my electronic travel diary. I hope you enjoy and get inspired to visit some of the wonderful places we have visited.
