This visit to the Mercado was well worth the trip to Matasinhos, wonderful fresh food and fish, fascinating, better idea than the worst lunch since arriving in Porto at Marisqueira de Matasinhos! Go by the Bus500 outside Sao Bento for €1.89 straight to the Mercado!

Matosinhos market is amazing. The city council is always organizing several events during the year and people engage with visitors. While in Matosinhos, best hours to visit is from 7 am to 11:30 am , where you will find diversity of fresh fish and vegetables.
