A market in Funchal, Madeira

Postcard
Funchal is the capital and main city in Portugal's Autonomous Region of Madeira. More and more new shopping centers and supermarkets are opened all over the island of Madeira to satisfy the consumers' 'needs'. Yet, there's nothing like the ambience of a typical market!

Originally, these regional markets were set up for selling flowers but with the time they expanded to all kinds of agricultural products and local food specialties, such as ‘bolo de caco’ bread, grilled chicken and wheat soup, to be consumed there or to take away.
