Rotary Christmas market moves to Arade pavilion

The annual Christmas Market organised by Rotary E-Club Porches International is this year taking place at the Centro de Congressos do Arade in Parchal during the weekend of November 19-20.

Sponsored by Turismo de Portugal and the Lagoa municipality, it is expected to be the biggest Christmas market ever.

With nearly 100 vendors, you can get everything you need to be ready for Christmas, from gifts and cards to decorations, gourmet treats and clothing. The market will be open both days from 11am to 5pm, and visitors can even make a day of it as there will be stands offering Indian food, tapas and wine, and freshly-prepared, hot Dutch pancakes in addition to the more traditional sausages and glühwein.

Rotary E-club Porches has a €5,000 project to provide much-needed equipment to the old people’s home, Lar de São José, in Ferragudo. It is planned that proceeds from the market will complete this project.

The new venue is located on the main road into Ferragudo. As the market will be held inside the pavilion, there is no reason to worry about the weather. There is also plenty of parking.
