1. MERCADITO BLOG DA CARLOTA – Christmas Edition

10th November

From 10 am to 7 pm at Centro Cultural de Belém. It’s a winner market, with dozens of brands and thousands of visitors. It was children’s clothes oriented at first, but it already features women’s fashion and décor. It is organized by blogger Fernanda Ferreira Velez, author of Blog da Carlota. It’s full of brands that we usually only have access to online.

22nd to 25th November. 

From 12 to 11 pm (on the last day it closes at 6), at the Lisbon Congress Center. A fair of varied products at reasonable prices and spread across 40 stands. The total revenue will be given to Associação Novo Futuro, an organization to foster and help children without a home. It is usual for the President of the Republic to set the example and do a lot of shopping as well.

29th November to 2nd December

 From 11h30 am to 9h30pm, at Campo Pequeno arena. An original market whose purpose is to contribute to divulge, stimulate and sustain small workshops, artisans and productive national micro activities which don’t usually have a presence close to the big public. It is a good way of raising awareness to the small Portuguese jewelry, fashion, toys, décor, gastronomy, and design industries.
