Mercado de Arroios, Mercado 31 de Janeiro and Mercado do Forno do Tijolo are considered essential elements in the commercial, social and multicultural life of the parish, besides being part of the traditional imaginary of the city.

There are three possibilities for shopping and enjoying these services in Arroios.

MERCADO 31 DE JANEIRO

Located on Rua Engenheiro da Silva, the Mercado 31 de Janeiro presents an area of ​​7000 square meters and consists of a basement, two floors above ground and a terrace.

The morning of September 13, 2014 marked the beginning of a new era with the presentation to the public of a renovated space and the availability of new newsstands and services. One of the novelties of the remodeling, led by the Arroios Parish Council with the collaboration of the Association of Traders in the Lisbon Markets, was the concentration of sellers on the ground floor. In addition, the Mercado 31 de Janeiro now has a children’s space and regular presence of vintage clothing, crafts and books.

MERCADO DE ARROIOS

The Mercado de Arroios is located at Rua Ângela Pinto between the Praça do Chile and Alameda D. Afonso Henriques. Here you can find fresh and frozen fish, salted cod and the like, vegetables, fruit, meat, sausage, roasted suckling pig, bakery, delicatessen, steakhouse and catering, as well as flowers, plants and garden articles, clothing, imitation jewelery and trinkets and even insurance services and hairdressing.

The most recent novelty for the Mercado de Arroios is the implementation of a hydroponic greenhouse project – without recourse to a soil – at the top of the building by the start-up Lisbon Farmers, with the support of the Lisbon City Council and the Arroios Parish Council.

The objective of this project is to bring agriculture to the city, through the production of horticultural foods and herbs that will be disposed of in the market itself. The project also has an educational aspect in which students from the schools of Lisbon, namely High School students, will be able to know the dynamics of food production in the city and distribution at the place of production.

Inaugurated officially on February 28, 1942, the Mercado de Arroios was classified in the late 1980s as a building of cultural interest, an aspect considered in the current restructuring process, which began in January 2015.

MERCADO DO FORNO DO TIJOLO

The Mercado do Forno do Tijolo has also been the target of extensive renovations that has already seen traders move to the area around the central square, a renovated area designed to take advantage of the luminosity of the space so that products can be appreciated in the best way .

In this market you can find fresh fish, vegetables, fruit, meat, frozen, eggs, bakery, delicatessen and bottled drinks, clothes, flowers, plants, gardening articles and even a supermarket. There is a free car park running from 07:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m., an ATM inside the supermarket, and it is here that can be found since July 2013 the FabLab Lisboa – the digital manufacturing laboratory of the Lisbon City Council that allows the creation, at a low cost, of new intellectual property products, helping to make the prototype of an idea a reality.

This market owes its name to the existence of a workshop of brick and tile kilns that existed there, at the top of Rua Maria da Fonte, before the beginning of its construction on January 4, 1954. Authored by the architect Eduardo AH dos Reis and implemented by the builder António Veiga, the Mercado do Forno do Tijolo was inaugurated on January 1, 1956.
