In 2014, José Moutinho and João Vasconcelos, childhood friends, decided to open a space that mirrored their interests and was different from everything already to be found in the city. Enter Mercado 48. More than a vintage and contemporary design concept store, this is both a casual and intimate space which invites you to mosey around enjoying the pieces showcased while indulging on a glass of wine in the friendly company of its owners.

It curates design, art and craftsmanship products from emerging brands which are mainly Portuguese. Mud Cycles, Alquimia, Wo Design, Daniela Ponto Final and Euterpe are some of its suggestions. Located in Conceição Street, Mercado 48  doubles as an art gallery and it also holds cultural and artistic events such as workshops, concerts and exhibits from local artists.
