The secret to elaborate a successful meal starts with the purchase of the basic products, which we are well sourced with in our fantastic local markets.

Lisbon’s food markets are an essential element of the city’s life. Each neighborhood boasts its own, usually located within remarkable late 19th century buildings, which gather the commercial life of each area. And Cooking Lisbon is conveniently located in close to one of the most vibrant food market of Lisboa, 31 de Janeiro food Market.


Known for supplying the best chefs in Lisbon, what you will find at 31 de Janeiro Market is a lot of quality mainly in fresh fish and seafood.

In September 2020, the market gained a new name, in honour of a fish seller who worked there for years, Açucena Veloso and became famous for supplying fish to the most renowned chefs in the region.


Take the chance of visiting this market led by one of our local professional chefs in our team. They will guide you through it, unveiling the secrets to purchase the freshest and most seasonal produce. Hopping from stall to stall, selecting some of the ingredients you will need for the cooking, interacting with the vendors and the busy and bustling market life that will imprint in your memories along with all the spices and colors of the best produce in the world

Cooking Lisbon is strongly committed and engaged to farm to table sustainability, which not only is a source of fresh flavors that require no preservatives (resulting in high nutritional benefits), but also supports local economy. The farm to table commitment has important beneficial impacts in the environment, and implies a huge ethical responsibility, engaging and encouraging local farmers to adopt and continue sustainable practices.
