A tour and taste of the Azores at Portugalia Marketplace in Fall River, Massachusetts
I thought it would be fun to take you to one of my favorite places to meet one of my favorite families. We’ll be visiting Portugalia Marketplace, a slice of Europe in Fall River, Massachusetts. Portugalia is a fabulous Azorean and Portuguese specialty market owned and operated by the Benevides family.
You’re going to love this place, I just know it! Portugalia is stocked like a market you’d find in Portugal, with the addition of prepared foods and the most unique cod room you’ve ever seen. I’ll explain the history and use of so many wonderful items, and we’ll end the tour with a delicious tasting table.
