At the Corner

LISBON

Mercado da Figueira

A must visit while in Lisbon. Not an extreme selection of cheese, but a bit of everything gourmet. We actually bought the finest of bacon there.

Round the corner from Mercado da Figueira you’ll also find a tiny bar called A Ginjinha, serving Cherry brandy, which they have done continuously since 1840. Try it!

Continente

Is no less than a hypermarket. As such usually pretty boring, but the one I found had an extremely wide and deep selection of regional Portuguese raw milk cheese. Lots of other good stuff as well, such as Norwegian wet salted and dried cod, aka Bacalhau.
