Honestly, I'm very underwhelmed by this place BUT it's really the only veggie market(s) in Lisbon so I can't hate too much. They have a good selection of faux-meats, some soy/veg cheeses, and many other bio/veg options. My problem is mostly with their cold case with pre-made sandwiches/tapas/etc. Boy oh boy are they TERRIBLE. ALL OF THEM! I tried 5 different items and each one was flavorless, doughy, and had strange textures. I mean, truly disappointing. Additionally, their small selection of produce is super hit or miss. One item will be perfect while the next is literally several days passed spoil. In all fairness, at least half of the tiny, cramped store is geared towards health items/vitamins/holistic healing so maybe the aim is towards that with the market as an afterthought. Anyway, I was thankful to have the market for some snacks as veggie food is Lisbon is a bit harder to come by than other EU cities buuut they have some improvements to make! A bigger store would be nice too.
