Attraction info

Located in the heart of old town Funchal, the “Mercado dos Lavradores” (Farmer´s Market) is a place that overflows colour, aroma, sound and tradition.  Inaugurated in 1940, the “Mercado dos Lavradores” was built to provide the island´s inhabitants with a central location to buy and sell local products.  With a covered area of 9,600m2, this structure´s main entrance is decorated with hand-painted azulejos (tiles) all displaying regional themes. Also at the main entrance you will find women dressed in the Madeira traditional costume selling flowers. Walking into the market you will find yourself on the first floor where fresh exotic fruits, vegetables, spices and herbs, leather and wicker are sold. To experience the combination of these exotic scents is worthwhile visiting the market.  Per  http://www.madeira-a-z.com/what-to-see/best-of-madeira/the-market.html

Colourful, fun and gorgeous

This place is amazing! Full of colourful fruit, friendly stallholders and just a joy to walk around! the kids loved most the amazing fish hall at the rear of the markets which you can just walk around and see all the strange and wonderful fish that have been freshly caught off the coast that morning. A wonderful (FREE!) way to spend a couple of hours! Highly recommended.
