About
In the morning, Mercado da Ribeira is a traditional food market that dates back to the 1890s, where you'll find local vendors selling fresh produce, flowers, fish, cheese, and other groceries. When the market closes, head to the next-door dining hall (Time Out Market), where there are over 30 stalls showcasing the best of Lisbon's culinary scene. Curated by Time Out’s food writers and editors, you'll find street food vendors and Michelin-star chefs serving up traditional Portuguese fare, seafood, pizza, ice cream, and more. Get your food, grab a beer, and find a seat by the communal tables. Meal times are busy, so get there early to avoid the lines. Don't miss all the best spots on a walking food tour of Lisbon. – Tripadvisor

    Loads of food to choose from!
    Was a lovely experience! I had seen time out market all over Tik Tok. There are so many good options to choose from. We got the train to the nearest station which is Cais Do Sodré and then it was a less than 10 minute walk from the station.

    Fun, and Delicious Food!
    We visited the Time Out Market (the evening dining hall) while in Lisbon. It was so interesting to see all the people (locals and visitors) enjoying all the various foods and drinks! We even ate dinner there and had a great time! Before dinner, we sat and relaxed at the park nearby and watched the locals enjoying their family outings.

    Pinoquio, great fish
    It’s an old market now turned into a very cool food destination. Small kitchens, wine shops, ice cream shops all grouped together in a small d market. I ate at Pinoquio, the clams and Jake were of the highest quality and the service was friendly and very high standard. An absolute must to stop and eat in Lisbon.

    Nice Market with lots of food options
    Visited the market twice during my visit to Lisbon. First visited on a Sunday but all the market stalls were closed. The Time Out food court was opened though and there were plenty of food choices to try out although some were more expensive than in other places but to be expected for a place catering to tourists. Returned the next day (Monday) but was disappointed that only the vegetable and fruit stalls were opened. Anyway, it should still be on your to do list when in Lisbon.

    Large food market
    Came here in the evening for dinner. the Time Out Market has numerous vendors selling great food at decent prices. Easy to find something each persone would like. Good for teens and older kids as they pick out what they each want. Good value

    Good place for a quick snack.
    It is very popular place not only among tourists but there are a lot locals having a quick bite. Many different choices from sea food, pizza, kebabs. A lot of choices of wine and beer. It maybe difficult to find empty seats, but if move around you can find something. We stopped there for a quick taste and we were not disappointed.

    Great place to sample local food options in a fun setting
    We were recommended this place by a WithLocals tour guide, because one of us is vegetarian and they said it would be a good place to get some classic local food while also having interesting vegetarian options. They were right! In the end we both chose something from Susana Felicidade - I had octopus and he had a sweet potato, pea, egg and mushroom concoction that he was very happy with. There were loads of great options, including for beer, wine, and desserts, and a DJ playing music that people were dancing too - loud enough to be danceable, quiet enough to allow diners to chat to each other, which I think is the perfect volume!

What a beautiful place and what a nice combination.
An absolute must.
Visit before noon, an important part closes at 2pm.
Metro station just opposite side of the street.

I love to come here for fresh fruit, but they have so much more as this is a traditional market with vegies and meat and fish. A nice old fashioned atmosphere with very friendly merchants.

We decide to have late lunch in the Time out market area. We came across Azul offering a variety of fish. The service was painfully slow waiting almost an hour to get our lunch. The fish platter was very good.
