Flea-Markets in Caldas da Rainha
The action takes place at D. Carlos I Park, right at the historic centre of the city of Caldas da Rainha, once every month.
The origins of this market at the park no one really knows, but it is one of the oldest and most relevant flea-markets in the region with hundreds of sellers offering a wide range of second-hand goods and vintage furnitures, illumination items, vintage toys, vinyl records, bicycles, motorcycles and analogue cameras.
Every second Sunday of the current month • From 9:00 to 17h00

Flea-Market in São Martinho do Porto
Pick through vintage advertising and second-hand books with an astonishing beach-front location.
The market stretches throughout the entire ocean promenade with all the stalls lined up at five steps away from one of the most beautiful beaches here at the Silver Coast. Here, you’ll uncover a little bit of everything. It’s popularity among tourists makes the prices slightly higher than what is considered “normal” for the area, so don’t be shy to offer a little less of the tagged price.
Once you’re tired of searching through antiquities and rags we suggest you to visit the old square of S. Martinho do Porto to have a coffee and enjoy the charms of the lovely views over the bay, without the hassle of the beach touristic movement.
Every last Sunday of the current month • 9:00 – 17h00
