Shopping in Faro

Shops in the Faro district

  • Porches Pottery - "Back to the Roots". When the pottery industry in the Algarve was dying, Patrick Swift and Lima de Freitas Porches Pottery, started to revive the tradition. Bowls, jugs, cups - all unique and hand-painted for you to take home.
  • Antonio Manuel Modas - The fight with your girlfriend left you desperate? Shop in the name of love! A fancy dress or a trendy top will make her forget the argument. Even if your wallet is a little lighter. As the famous Carrie Bradshaw from Sex and the City once said, " I like money where I can see it: in my wardrobe." Right in the heart of Faro, you'll find the perfect place to start.
  • Markets - looking for local fruit and vegetables? If you're renting a car in Faro, it's best to head out and head to the Mercado de Olhao. Farmers and fishermen will take care of you, don't worry. Weekends are perfect if you're looking for a colourful gipsy market. Loule is considered one of the most beautiful.
  • Jah-Shaka Surf Shop - If surfing is your way of life, this is the place to be. Jah-Shaka Surf Shop will provide you with fantastic surfing equipment. The friendly staff will help you choose the best product. You can even rent surfboards and wetsuits here.
