Most of the shopping outlets in Faro are on Rua Santo António or its neighbor, Rua Francisco Gomes, in the heart of town. Check out Carminho, Rua Santo António 29 (tel. 28/982-65-22), a well-recommended outlet for handicrafts and, to a lesser extent, traditional clothing. If you're interested in wandering like a local resident amid stands and booths piled high with the produce of southern Portugal, consider a trek through the Mercado de Faro, Largo do Mercado, in the town center. It's open daily from 6:30am to 1:30pm.
