We arrived at around 10 o'clock on a rainy Saturday morning and there was barely anything set up so we looked around the rest of the town and returned around 11.30. There was not a great deal more and certainly nothing a would want to...More

I guess like all other markets, lots of the same things at several of the stalls. Found some of them very pushy to the point of being aggressive. Not somewhere I would return.

Great gypsy market. Well worth a visit. Lots of great bargains to be had. Lots of different stalls selling many things.

This was a bit of a disappointment. Everything was closed or closing when we arrived at hour before the closing time. Some good deals on tourist type items. The market in town is much nicer.

All you'd expect from genuine MK bags for 10 Euros!!!!! To cheap underwear and nice locally made jewellery. We went in February and it was emptying but I gather when the season starts the market drastically improves. 2 tips, taxi from Albufeira should be around...More

We came to the Loule Gypsy Market looking for some good deals and selection of cork handbags. We know it is out of season but the prices were the same as tourist shops in Albuferie and the selection wasn't larger. Probably in high season might...More

I love visiting markets when abroad on holiday and have visited many over the years. I was looking forward to this market, but found it particularly disappointing. The stalls were very similar throughout, so once you'd seen the first few, you really didn't need to...More

There is an organised trip here regularly - look for trips being offered in the local shops and compare prices to get the best deal.
