Mercado da Pedra

Make your way to Mercado da Pedra in the historic town center around lunch time - the market is known for its extensive offer of seafood, and houses several eateries serving fresh oysters, which won't cost a fortune here. Some local speciality items and deli are also sold at the market; do expect a selection more limited than that of a larger city.


Basket-weaving has a long tradition in Vigo, and the craft is still kept alive by locals (Cesteiros is a street where basket weavers once lived; craftsmen of today showcase and sell their work here, too). Woodwork, ceramics, and precious metal jewellery are some of the arts still fostered and propelled in Vigo, and modern takes on ancient forms often make for very stylish designs.
