Mercado do Bolhão is a prominent market in the city of Porto, Portugal, known for its neoclassical architecture. The market is spread over two floors and has four main entrances, with the south entrance leading to the ground floor via Rua Formosa, and the side entrances via Rua de Sá da Bandeira and Rua Alexandre Braga leading to an intermediate landing with stairs connecting both floors. The north entrance on Rua de Fernandes Tomás provides direct access to the upper floor. The market mainly sells fresh products, with vendors divided into specialized sections such as fishmongers, butchers, and horticultural and floral areas. The building also houses shops that sell other varieties of goods such as clothing, perfumes, fabrics, and more. The market was designated as a property of public interest on February 22, 2006 and in 2013, it was classified as a monument of public interest.
