The new shop offers a selection of cured hams, Portuguese wines and small delicacies to please the most demanding palates
– September 5, 2022
Located inside Portimão’s Municipal Market, the Presuntaria do Mercado opened its doors to the public in August. The gourmet shop is the first of its kind in the region, focusing on serving top-quality, 100% acorn-fed Iberian ham sliced using a special Beher knife, Spain’s leading cured ham producer, boasting almost a century of history and products recognised around the world.
The superior quality of this Spanish brand’s hams results from its complete control of the production process, from rearing the Iberian pigs, fed exclusively on acorns, to the preparation and curing method.
The shop offers freshly sliced ham and a selection of premium Portuguese wines, handpicked to be paired with the hams, for take-away or to be savoured on the spot. The shop also includes a small delicatessen shop, where other gourmet products, such as biscuits and olive oils, can be found.
A calendar of wine tastings and other gourmet events will soon be announced, and an Algarve-wide home delivery service was launched in September.
The new shop is also participating in this year’s edition of the Rota dos Petiscos, from the September 14 until October 16.
