“Mercado da Ribeira” is the original name of the place that Time Out magazine rebuilt into the new Lisbon Experience Hot Spot.
Where you used to go only for fresh fruit and vegetables, now you have some of the best restaurants and chefs of Lisbon represented there, under the slogan “Welcome to the first magazine in the world that you can read, eat and drink it”.
The dynamic is simple. You grab the food and drinks from one or several restaurants of your choice (not necessarily the same as your family and friends), and go sit in the food court where you’ll be able to interact with everyone there (no being confined to the walls of a traditional restaurant).
