Lisbon has some of the largest shopping malls in Europe. "Armazens do Chiado" is the most central, "Colombo" is the largest, and "Amoreiras" is the oldest. They all house well-known international retailers and fast and not-so-fast food restaurants. They're ideal for some shopping on a rainy day in the city, but if you are looking for traditional markets, head to Mercado da Ribeira (for fresh fruit, vegetables, fish, or simply a colorful atmosphere and a very popular food hall), and the flea market Feira da Ladra in Alfama.
