Santana market

Strolling on authentic regional market makes you hungry

The Mercado de Santana in Venda da Costa, right between the municipalities of Caldas da Rainha, Rio Maior and Alcobaça, is a true experience.

Every Sunday of the year you can fully immerse yourself in Portuguese life on this authentic market. And you will not be alone! Because they come from everywehere, the people who come her to shop, or sell their often home-grown products.

Fresh fruits and vegetables, all kinds of cheese, as well as baskets, furniture and hardware. And what could be better than to round off a pleasant morning on the market with a delicious traditional Portuguese lunch at one of the restaurants? Chicken piri-piri, chips and a great regional wine. Of course followed by a typical Portuguese coffee.
