Ribeira Brava Market

Ribeira Brava is traditionally an important trading point on the west coast of the island of Madeira. The exchange and sale of products from neighbouring areas has been taking place here for many decades.

The Ribeira Brava Market is, therefore, a place of special importance in the daily life of this town. The atmosphere of this commercial space is very dynamic and lively.

Here, customers can find some of the fresh produce that make the Madeira archipelago famous, the fruit of its subtropical climate and the unusual fertility of its soils, for example. The Ribeira Brava Market can be found at Rua Gago Coutinho and Sacadura Cabral.

Inside, it is divided into several areas: fishmonger's, butcher's, fruit and vegetable market and, lastly, an area dedicated to the famous regional craftworks of Madeira. The building that houses the Ribeira Brava Market was built in the 19th century. However, it underwent requalification works in the 1990s.

In this context, it is important to highlight the tile panels that can be admired inside the premises. So, be sure to do your shopping in this traditional Ribeira Brava commercial space.
