People in the traditional Friday market of Tomar

Traditional markets often reflect the life style, culture and habits of people. In this case it is a long tradition in Tomar for people to head to the local market on Fridays. It’s a weekly event that has been taking place for a few centuries, even though some people now prefer supermarkets and shopping centres. Even if you don’t want to buy anything it’s still interesting to feel the atmospheres of the Tomar market.
