We visited the market and town on a Saturday, was very busy but worth a visit. Loads of fresh fruit, veg and honey. There is a small fudge stall which is worth finding as the fudge is lovely. Inside the market is lots of fresh...More

A lovely market with a variety of things to buy. We got fudge made with butternut squash purée yummy and the lady who sold it was so helpful. We also got a very hot chilli sauce too.

For a main attraction in the area, was very disappointed with this! I’m sure it’s a great market for people who live in the area as the fish is fresh (despite flies all over it) but for tourists it’s not so great. It may be...More

Lovely indoor market which is open everyday for essentials. We went on a weekday and on a Saturday. The Saturday Market had a lot more stalls, spilling into the outside areas and the atmosphere was buzzing. We loved it.

The market in Loule is lovely, it’s not the sun so not too hot. The market offers a fruit and vegetable section, a fish section, a meat section and touristy gift section.

We spent a morning in Loule at the indoor market and exploring the surrounding streets. The market is very busy, get there before 9:30 if possible as parking is free but difficult to find a space if you arrive mid morning. Take time to wander...More

Sorry...we drove...but I am sure that you will have not difficulty finding it. The bus station is nearby, as I recall. Check Google maps.

There isn't really a timetable as such. You will need to ask for an approximate time.
