A few weeks after our discovery of an open air market in Porto, we happened upon an enchanting little market in Portugal’s Algarve coastal town of Alvor. Known locally as Mercadinho da Ria, this menagerie of pop up, shaded market stalls appears on Sunday mornings around 8 am and has completely vanished by mid-afternoon. For us, it was a lucky find!
Fava beans, or graos de fava, are a popular pub snack
Life is short. Play with your food!

I love this. At the moment we are in Faro. Your photos make me hungry
I hope you are enjoying the Algarve as much as we are!
