Lisbon Locals: grocery shopping help

Jump to last reply

Hi all! We are currently in Day 3 of our month-long stay in Lisbon. The weather has not been great but we are still liking it very much. We are staying in an apartment across from Praça de Flores, close to Principe Real.

Though we are quite happy with the neighborhood, we have not been able to locate in our disorganized wanderings a decently-stocked grocery store. There is a 'mini market' a couple hundred meters from us and a bigger one in San Bento but their offer of meat and vegetables is very limited and a little sad.

We made it down to the Ribeira Market (loved it!) and the offer was great but it is a bit far for daily shopping and schlepping back. Certainly not in the cold rain we are having today.

This apparent shortage might be driven by us looking to shop on Saturday / Sunday but I thought I could ask here for suggestions. I'm perfectly fine going from baker, to butcher, to fishmonger and so forth.

Any pointers from the locals?
