The project, designed by the award-winning Porto architect Eduardo Souto de Moura, spans about two thousand square meters and includes 12 of the city’s most exciting restaurants, two bars, a tasting room, and a shop. Here’s all the essential info on opening hours, restaurants, location and what to expect.

The new Porto market will be open every day from 10am to midnight (except on opening day, when it opens at 12.30pm).

Where is Time Out Market Porto?

The market will take over the south wing of São Bento Station. Alongside the vendors in the main hall, there will also be a Time Out Market tower, which boast unmatched views of the Clérigos Church. The tower will house the Portuguese shop Vida Portuguesa at its base and a tasting room at the top, where visitors can sip and learn about some of the finest Porto and Douro wines.

The launch party

Local star Capicua will perform a concert at the opening party. ‘I'm excited. [The Time Out Market] is a new space blending two things I love, architecture and gastronomy. I'll definitely sing 'Circunvalação,’ a song about Porto, but since it's a launch party, I think I'll go for something more upbeat and dancey,’ the rapper shared in an interview with Time Out.
