The market is open only until early afternoon as a rule, and on Saturdays closes about 13.30hrs.

It's only open in the evenings for special events.

The town itself will be fairly busy of an evening I guess, but I have never been there later than 6pm!

Loulé is my home town these days and the evenings downtown are rather quiet. It's a typical working town and by the lack of many hotels, there are just a few tourists around and others coming by car. Shops close at 7 pm, there are plenty of restaurants but never too busy.

The market hall is open every day, except sunday. Just in the morning till 1 - 1.30 pm.

On saturday there's also an open air fruit/veggie market around the old market hall. It tends to pack up around 1.30 - 2 pm

In the afternoon you can still visit the market hall as many souvenir shops are also housed inside and they open again after 3 pm. In general shops are open from 10.00 - 13.00 and from 15.00 - 19.00 hrs.

Thanks for replys.

Think we are going to head over saturday morning now so we can catch the market.

Do you know of any buses that run from Vilamoura where we are staying, or how much a taxi might be?

Many thanks again in advance!

A taxi would be around 18-20 euro one way.

If you take the Hilton courtesy bus to the marina, you can catch the bus there. First to Quarteira and from there a bus to Loulé.

For timetables, pls see Cubsur's site: http://www.algarvebus.info/

Have a nice trip!
