Mercado dos Lavradores, Farmers’ market, Madeira Island


O Mercado dos Lavradores apresenta dois painéis de azulejos na entrada principal e vários painéis no interior, cuja produção foi da outrora famosa Fábrica de Sacavém, entretanto extinta. Localizado muito próximo da zona histórica de Santa Maria, no Mercado, vive-se um ambiente de rebuliço, próprio de qualquer mercado, no entanto, neste, ressalta a multiplicidade de cores e odores das lindas flores que a todos inebriam. Estrelícias, orquídeas, proteias, rosas, antúrios, catleyas, camélias são expostas e vendidas pelas desenvoltas floristas, também trajadas de vivas cores com o fato típico regional. No primeiro andar encontram-se expostas as frutas tropicais, as hortaliças e as especiarias. O peixe e a carne apresentam-se no piso inferior do edifício.

The farmers’ market has two panels of tiles at the main entrance and several inside. They were made by the once-famous Fábrica de Sacavém.At the market, which is very near the old Santa Marianeighbourhood, the atmosphere is bustling as you would expect from any market. But this one is ablaze with colours and redolent with the intoxicating perfume of beautiful flowers. Birds of paradise, orchids, king proteas, roses, cattleyas and camellias are sold by the sprightly flower sellers wearing brightly coloured regional costumes.On the upper floor there are tropical fruits, vegetables and spices, while fish and meat are on sale on the lower floor.
