Why locals love it

Feira da Ladra (translating it means Thief Fair) is the oldest fair in Lisbon, its origins came from Middle Ages, XIII century. Locals only have to ask for a license at City Hall and go there and sell whatever they want to sell.

Why you should visit it

It’s a popular street market where any kind of object can be found in a selling tent, stalls or spread on the ground upon a cloth or blanket. Most of the objects are second hand and you can find furniture, junkyard, books, magazines, clothing, vinyl records, old black and white pictures, old cameras, tiles, antiques, frippery and so on.

Special tip

Do not be afraid of haggle prices, it’s part of the game. If it's good weather it closes around 5 pm.
