Portugalia is not just a place to buy authentic Portuguese goods. “It’s a cultural destination and experience” says Michael Benevides, Owner of Portugalia Marketplace. The family business, open for 31 years, stared off importing goods and then added on retail. Along with selling wine and prepared foods Portugalia is noted for its café and salted cod room. The Fall River store was featured on the PBS show “No Passport required” as a go-to spot for everything Portuguese.
Recently opened within the marketplace is Artigos, a specialty store. The shop will be featuring smaller craft brands and imported specialties. Everything from chocolates and running shoes to sunglasses and furniture will be sold. The only stipulation? “Everything is Portuguese and from Portugal” says Benevides.
Hours are: Monday- Saturday 8:00am-7:00pm and Sunday 9:00am-2:00pm. For more information call (508) 617-9820 or visit www.portugaliamarketplace.com.
