To Shop in São Martinho do Porto
The shopkeepers in São Martinho do Porto know that window shopping is a favorite weekend activity and they "dress" the windows accordingly. It is a common site to see couples and friends walking arm and arm taking in the latest fashion and home accessory trends through creative window displays. While most of the shops are concentrated along the bayfront, wandering the streets in the old town is well worth the effort. There are great finds - everything from local crafts to leather boots, so be sure to amble slowly. If your holiday just happens to span the last Sunday of the month, there is an antiques fair right on the boardwalk that brings everyone out for a day at the beach. There are vintage toys, bakeware, bicycles and everything in between.
