Visiting the Local Market with the Chef
The Livramento market in Setúbal was considered one of the most famous in the world by the American newspaper “USA Today”.
The publication compiled a list of the most famous world fish markets and highlighted in the Setubal market the 5.700 tile pieces that cover an area of over 350 square meters depicting scenes of the Portuguese daily life in the 30s, such as fishing or agriculture.
Traditional sardines also stand out, with the reference that in June, the month of popular saints, 13 sardines are eaten at each second.
