    Souvenirs and handicrafts: Street vendors

    by fairy_dust Updated Sep 5, 2006

    There are many street vendors in Lisbon, especially around touristy areas like Belem. Some have booths set up, and others walk around carrying their stuff.

    What to buy: Local crafts, beach towels, embroidered tablecloths, handbags/coin purses, shawls/scarves, fans, postcards, etc.

    Manuel Tavares, Lda.: A fine delicatessen shop in Lisbon's centre

    by schmechi Written Dec 1, 2004

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Manuel Tavares delicatessen shop is one of the oldest in Lisbon. It was founded in 1860 and is well known for its great variety of Portuguese wines and liquors. You'll get also many other delicatessen like sweets, ham, cheeses, fine chocolates, olive oil, vinegar and canned fish. They even sold Bacalhau there.
    It is a good place to buy some typical Portuguese products, especially eatables and fine wines in a time-honoured athmosphere.

    They accept major credit cards and there is a possibility to order some of their products for shipping all over the world via the internet.

    What to buy: Wines, liquors and other delicatessen (see above).

    What to pay: Depends on what you are buying, some wines are really good ones, so they have higher prices. But you will invest your money in quality products.

    Not sure of the name: Tourist shop

    This spotless shop in the upstairs of the Mercado da Ribeira has all kinds of local crafts, gifts and souvenirs. Although the prices aren't the best in town, the selection is hard to beat, so if you're in a hurry and have a lot of people on your shopping list, this would be worth a stop.
