As you drive out to Cape St. Vicnete your eyes are peeled to the left to the ocean. However just as you take the turn from Sagres out to the Cape you see the most interesting store with hundreds of plates on a stucco wall. The store is a seller of traditional Portugese pottery and plates. They also sale local pieces of art and plates made in the greater Sagre area. The front of the store literally has hundreds of plates of all sizes and colors all over it. It makes for an interesting stop and a picture of two. Goods inside the store are quite reasonably priced.
What to buy: Artisan plates and Portugese pottery.
Just outside of the Cape St. Vincent lighthouse there were a number of vagabond merchants selling anything from clothes to food. Some of the folks at these automobile 'tailgate' shops were themselves tourists that were making some money to continue on their trips.
It was interesting to browse through the various tables and talk to these sales people. I wound up buying a nice T-shirt from one of them.
This shop near Sagres was a very nice all white Shop that had a large variety of ceramics , many different kind of ceramic lamps amd lanterns, designed to hang on walls, very nice to see and reasonable prizes.
What to pay: You look at the item you buy and you can bargain over the prize.
Some street of Sagres had market stands set up and it was a busy street with lots of people shopping.
A fleamarket is held in Sagres on fridays.
The locals come out and buy their wares.
Music is played on the grounds where the Fleamarket is
