The riverside of Porto is must for a walk and stop to have a snack and enjoy the views of the river. There are many many choices of eateries from which to choose a snack or meal and watch the activities of the waterfront.

I don't think there's a market in the Zona Ribeirinha. But the Mercado do Bolhão is worth a visit though.
