Organic, sustainable food shops in Lagos
If you’re committed to sticking to environmental practices into your stay, an organic local food shop is a must. Open Monday to Saturday, Hortelã pimenta is the go-to organic shop in Lagos for all things fresh and local. Want to make sure your veg is as fresh as can be? Pop in on Wednesday when they get their deliveries to get first pick.
Next is Viv’o Mercado, held every Wednesday from 2 to 8 pm. Here, you’ll find everything from craft beer to locally produced honey, cosmetics, and sweet treats. An experience in itself, a trip to Viv’o is a dive into the heart of the Algarve and all it has to offer.
Ordering online for sustainable food deliveries
When searching for organic, there’s nothing quite like going straight to the source. Why not order from a farm that supplies Lagos’ most notable markets? A Horta do Tomás delivers fresh produce to your door in only a couple of clicks.
For a more general shop of Portugal-sourced produce, however, Merceria Bio provides a range of options, from fruit and veg boxes to hampers and beauty products to healthy snacks. Want to opt for organic without leaving the comfort of your luxury villa? Find out more here.
Pick-your-own options in the Algarve
Then there’s getting out into the fresh air to pick your own products so that you know exactly where it comes from. There are a few options around Lagos, from blueberry picking to citrus picking in the hills. Feel the country air calling you? Ask your concierge for more details.
Locally sourced and excellently prepared
Finally, if what you’re after is combining a first-class service with eco-friendly practices, how about choosing your own ingredients and then getting LUX MARE’s personal chef to whip them up for you?
If you’re about town on a Saturday morning, stop by the Lagos Levante Market for a taste of true Portugal. Inside, you’ll find a real farmers’ market, where locals sell their locally grown produce for fair prices. Scout around for the nicest looking fruit and veg, and make sure you leave time for a chat with the (mostly elderly) vendors. Then there’s Lagos’ iconic fish market. Wander into hand-pick the freshest fish of the day, ready to be taken back to your luxury villa for a meal for the books.
LUX MARE isn’t just a holiday home; it’s a lifestyle choice. One made possible by all the sustainable options the Algarve, and Lagos, has to offer, so dive in for an authentic experience of a lifetime.
