Fish market in Olhao

Avenida 16 de Junho, 8700 Olhão, Portugal

The Algarve’s busiest fishing port, Olhao boasts a fish market that is set at the center of the town. Noisy and vibrant, the stalls proudly display fish and shellfish, and purveyors will typically clean and gut your purchases for you as you wait. Visit in mid-August when the entire town gathers for the annual Shellfish Festival.
