Not in Alvor!

Posted on 06 / 10 / 2013

The map makes it look like this is in Alvor, a small beach town close to Portimao, but this is assuredly a mistake. The store is either closed or in Portimao as no such health food shop exists anywhere near the cesspool of hamburgers and bad Italian food known as Alvor!

Very Convenient

Yes, you can buy vegan and vegetarian items such as soya milk, sausages and burgers at the two large Pingo Doce supermarkets in town but the Ervanaria shops (of which there at least three in Portimao) are dedicated health food stores selling a wider range of products. The prices are a bit high but they often have special offers and price reductions. In this particular store just off the main square all the food items are in the back room and not immediately obvious until you actually go in. Definitely worth a visit if you are either staying in or visiting the city and need some supplies for the hotel or wherever you are staying to prepare a meal for a BBQ etc (vegan mayo, burgers, sauces etc)

Pros: location
Cons: price
