The best of Lisbon under one roof

Have a look inside.

Food markets are popping in cities around the world. I had the pleasure to give TimeOut Lisbon a proper crash test from three different perspectives: as a gipsy living in a van, during a holiday with my significant other, and as a nomad, roaming in a co-living space.

TimeOut Lisbon is located a few hundred meters from the Praça do Comérçio, right in front of the metro station of Cais do Sodré and a few steps from the seaside pedestrian with views on the Cristo Rei statue, and the 25 de Abril Bridge. The market is easily accessible from the airport.

A traditional market completed with a foodie hall outlines an evolution from traditional to experiential marketplace. Lisbon’s history and culinary experience are summarized under one roof. An independent panel of journalists investigated the Lisbon foodie scene: if it’s good it goes in the magazine. If it’s GREAT it goes in the market.

For a Los Angeles couple on holiday, a food market is nothing new since they’re frequently visiting the Grand Central in downtown L.A. As much as a food hall isn’t necessarily a reason to visit a city; it's definitely a game changer.


There's no competition at TimeOut Lisbon and foodies enough for chefs to focus on quality, and make recommendations based on what the visitor is looking for. Chocolate cake too big ? Try the booth at the opposite side of the area. Outside the food market: Comoba serves heavenly spirulina bowls for breakfast.

Chef Vitor Hugo from Peixola serves green wine, oysters and codfish. Both are located within walking distance from TimeOut Lisbon. They are outstanding in experience and quality.
